Rock County Historical Society


Internships are a great way to progress in your career journey. Join us on Campus and explore your path working for a respected nonprofit. We are museums and so much more. In addition to archives and exhibits, RCHS also provides valuable experience for those interested in exploring not-for-profit missions, education, events management, social media engagement and marketing, business management, development, tourism or customer service. 


What We Offer

Real-life experience in a dynamic work environment is at your fingertips. Work with our professional staff in a variety of areas to get a well-rounded perspective of what museum work is like.

Our interns are an important part of our community, and we value all of the work that you are able to give us. We hope that your experience here is rewarding, and that you find challenges and build valuable skills. Every year, our interns help us to make connections with our visitors, run great community events, help guests discover their own histories, and keep RCHS running!

Our Interns Speak For Themselves

“RCHS has allowed me to immerse myself in all parts of the museum process in a very hands-on way. I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to work so closely on educational programs.”

“Y’all are dreamers, in the best way.”

“The work culture is friendly but professional-you can have informative business meetings but throw in some jokes. I love that it is progressive and thinking outside the box, and programming for a younger generation.”

“I love that RCHS is looking to involve the community more and is making more [programming] available because of the positive feedback from the community. They are always looking for ways to improve.”
