Interns will work on event planning, research, and cross-cultural planning. Internship responsibilities include: – assistance in fundraising and member management – management and operations of a museum – communications, web and social media

We ask that interns be able to dedicate three days a week for three months. Please send résumé, cover letter, and three-page writing sample (in English or German) to [email protected].


The Heritage Museum’s mission is to collect, record, preserve and exhibit the rich cultural legacy of Americans of German-speaking ancestry and make their contributions to American history available to audiences of all ages.

The German-American Heritage Museum of the USA™ opened in March, 2010 in a building once known as Hockemeyer Hall. Renovations were completed by the GAHF after acquiring the building in 2008. Located on 6th Street NW in the heart of the old European-American section of Washington, the Museum sits in what is now a thriving commercial neighborhood.
