JFK Hyannis Museum
(our interns with former U.S. Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy, III)


John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum features multimedia exhibits and programs designed to open a window on the days President Kennedy spent on Cape Cod, a place he called his true home. With an average annual attendance of over 60,000 visitors from around the world, the museum is an important destination for Cape Cod residents and guests.

The museum offers part-time internships to students interested in history which may further develop skills in research, writing, website development, graphic design and public speaking. Interns must have a strong work ethic, creativity and a drive to accomplish goals. Positions may be available on site and/or remotely for an undergraduate seeking experience in operations of a busy museum. A major in history, art history, design or museum studies is a plus! Work assignments may be up to 15 hours a week and are flexible. Experience as a summer intern often leads to favorable review by potential employers who seek strong customer service and program development. Interested candidates should send cover letter and resume to wendy@jfkhyannismuseum.org.

Volunteers and Docents

The museum values part-time volunteers during our busy summer and fall months. Working in the museum gift shop, assisting with admissions and membership sales and staffing special programs would be a few of the many areas available to participate. The museum operates in a safe and clean environment following all CDC and Commonwealth of MA guest capacity protocols, including visits by appointments via on-line ticket sales.

Docents are an important part of the museum-goers’ experience and help showcase our museum’s mission to educate guests of the time President John F. Kennedy, and his family spent in Hyannisport and Cape Cod. Volunteers with knowledge of John F. Kennedy history and enjoy the role of ambassador for greeting people from around the world are invited to express interest to wendy@jfkhyannismuseum.org.
