We’re very proud of our small team of enthusiastic interns who arrive at The Story Museum from all over the world.  We’ve greatly valued their imaginative, lively and hardworking contribution. Our interns are generally students working during the university vacation, or graduates wanting to gain experience with us for a few weeks or months. Some have been working on specific projects, others have been helping to raise funds, market and organise events, or use their practical skills to help the exhibition team.


“I will always treasure my time at The Story Museum. It enabled me to develop communication skills and to explore design, costume and front of house work. It has inspired me to consider working in this environment in the future. Being a part of such a creative and supportive team, I was able to see The Story Museum’s mission and the impact this has on visitors. I would recommend visiting and coming to see first-hand the amazing work this Museum provides for the community.”  William – work experience student
