“It was such a life changing experience for me. I had the opportunity to curate my first exhibit with a fellow intern… made lasting friendships, and learned so much about museums" - Amanda Morgida (Smith College)

  • Make life-long friends and expand their professional networks;
  • Participate in a vibrant living-learning community at the Center for 17th-Century Studies at Plimoth Patuxet
My internship at Plimoth Patuxet not only gave me international experience (I came over from the UK) but practice carrying out consultancy style ethnographic projects. I was able to directly apply the skills I had learnt through my Social Anthropology degree at the London School of Economics. It inspired me to begin searching for jobs in visitor analysis ... which I believe is a direct result of the responsibilities I was given, and lessons I learned at Plimoth Patuxet." - Amelia Mulcahey (London School of Economics)
