We bring our dogs to work. We do yoga. We lunch together and laugh together. We celebrate our differences. We realize our workplace is a treasure. This is more than just a job.

We Are The High Desert Museum.


Internships at the High Desert Museum are based on educational objectives designated by the intern candidate, faculty advisor and the Museum’s internship supervisor, a manager or executive staff member who serves as the student’s mentor. Educational objectives should be clearly articulated in a project description that extends interns the benefit of work experience while supporting a directive within the Museum’s annual action plans. The educational objectives will form the criteria for evaluation and will describe the project itself, its scope and responsibilities, duration, arrangement for academic credit if applicable, and final evaluation procedure.
