I am interning at Salisbury House this semester and am participating in all aspects of a small museum. I started working on the cataloging program and helped organize the museum’s extensive object and book collection. As the semester went on, I began giving tours and learned about how the Salisbury House Foundation chooses to interpret the story of this home. Currently, I have been doing my own research in the files and photo albums of the Weeks family, who built and owned the home, to create an exhibit proposal. This internship has given me an interesting behind-the-scenes look at how a small museum works and provided me with experiences I would not have had in the classroom.
