The Army supports 57 museums located at posts throughout the country and in Korea and Germany, as well as the National Museum of the U.S. Army in Washington, D.C. Cadet interns are introduced to the Army Museum Enterprise and how the U.S. Army Center of Military History supports military training and education, and provides access to museums for the visiting public while also managing its immense wealth of material culture (artifacts). The internship also offers first-hand experience in museum management at the division level with the management of Army historical property, historical research and education, exhibit fabrication and installation, and visitor services. Generally, the intern will have a specific project to complete during their tour but will also be expected to conduct several other routine museum-based activities.

Activities may include:

  • Conduct a museum artifact inventory (under the supervision of museum professional staff).
  • Conduct historical research to support artifact history.
  • Train for and present a museum exhibit tour to a group of Soldiers or visitors.
  • Prepare a military history educational product (presentation, paper) for future use.
  • Conduct a review and recommend updates to a museum Standard Operation Procedure (SOP).
  • Assist museum professional staff with the installation of an exhibit.

Most Cadet internships are four weeks long and occur after the Cadet attends Advanced Camp at Fort Knox. Some semester-long or summer-long internships are available for Cadets who are in an academic program that requires an on-site internship or practicum that can be accomplished at a museum. 

Academic majors in history, public history, military studies, museum studies, public affairs, education and design are preferred, but all majors are considered. Cadet interns may be expected to work some weekend and evening hours based on the schedule and activities of their host museum.

A list of Army museums and their locations can be found on the U.S. Army Center of Military History website. Note that not all museums participate in the Army ROTC Cadet internship program every year.
