Seeking College Interns/Volunteers!
The Richard Nixon Presidential Library’s elite Docent Guild is looking for college interns! This internship is ideal for students in history, education, political science, American studies, and museum studies programs. Other majors are welcome as well!
Whether you are looking to earn hours toward an Internship or just get additional life/career experience, becoming a Docent Intern is a great way to learn about history and improve your presentation/public speaking skills.
The NEW Nixon Library
The gallery within the Library reopened its doors to the public last October, nearly a year after the $15-million construction began on the 25-year-old exhibits. A completely new and interactive presidential museum is the result. The exhibits provide guests an in depth look at the life and legacy of the 37th president utilizing new technology and originally produced interactive media. The renovation creates a state-of-the-art learning environment. Included in the new gallery are a replica of President Nixon’s Oval Office, new interactive displays throughout, and dramatic films and video clips.
