Internships & Volunteering

High School

Students can use this time to fulfill their community service requirements by assisting with Event Mailings, Education/School Tours, Research, Public Programs, and Special Events. Scheduling is flexible, office hours are Monday through Thursday 9:30–5:00 and museum hours are Tuesday, Saturday, and Sunday 2:30–4:30. Students will always be supervised during these times.


All students are encouraged to apply and most of our internships focus on Education/School Tours, Public Programming, Collections/Exhibitions, Library Science, and special projects as needed. While focusing on these areas students will gain excellent first-hand experience with a desirable resume-building assignment in a museum setting.


QHS thrives with help from our volunteers. Volunteers take on a central role in assisting with various aspects of the organization. Special events and public programming maintain high levels of success due to the diligence of our volunteers. Opportunities to volunteer within the administrative, education, and collections departments also exist. Special projects can be developed to meet specific interests.
