Since its origin in 1934, the Weisman Art Museum (WAM) has been a teaching museum for the University of Minnesota. Today, education remains central to the museum’s mission to make the arts accessible – intellectually, emotionally, and physically – to the University and public communities. When you work at the Weisman, you’re part of a dynamic team of professionals, situated on a world-class university campus. WAM is home to a vast collection of art and critically acclaimed exhibitions, thoughtful programs, and engaging visitor experiences for both the campus and wider community. Working at the Weisman puts a wealth of professional opportunities and training at your fingertips, including access to the benefits and resources of a major university campus. All open positions are listed on the University of Minnesota Office of Human Resources website.

UMN Student Employment Opportunities

The museum employs students in the WAM Shop and in visitor services, events, custodial, and other departments. In short, students really run the place. All open positions are listed on the University of Minnesota Office of Human Resources website. WAM doesn’t have any student jobs listed currently, but check back again soon! The museum hires throughout the year as positions become available.


Student interns work on focused projects in a variety of departments. Students interested in unpaid internships may submit an application at any time or check back for open positions below. New placements, when available, occur at the beginning of fall and spring semester and during the summer. Internships are available for academic credit.  Interested? Tell us about yourself >>



Our mission is to create engaging exhibitions and programs that spark discovery, critical thinking, and transformation, both at the University and throughout the Twin Cities. Everyone is welcome to join us in this mission, and to have some fun while they’re at it! That’s why we recently transitioned to a free membership model!
