Internship Possibilities
Buffalo Bill Historical Center
Summer 2011

The Buffalo Bill Historical Center Conservation Lab is offering
internships during the summer of 2011. We are accepting program
interns in paper and objects and pre-program interns.  Internship
length is flexible.  As of this date, the internships are not
funded.  There are usually opportunities for employment with the
museum's food and beverage, museum shop, and security departments.
There are also employment opportunities in the town of Cody.  There
is a dorm where interns may rent space in the summer and there is
also housing in the town of Cody.
