Ways to Get Involved at the Harn


Gain real world experience, learn the inner workings of an art museum and form relationships that will last throughout your time at UF and beyond. The Harn Museum has a variety of internship opportunities in all departments—including Curatorial, Development, Education, Public Relations and Marketing, Registration, Horicultural and Visitor Services.

Our Internships

Join us for Museum Nights

Held the Second Thursday of Every Month from 6 – 9 pm!

Create memories and connect with art by participating in a photo booth, watching a drum performance, designing a sushi magnet or competing with your friends to find a work of art in our scavenger hunt. These types of activities–organized by students–take place the second Thursday of every month from 6 to 9 p.m. Also, enjoy free food!

Relax + create

Bishop Study Center

This interactive space is being reimagined as a place designed by and for college students with additional activities and engagement accessible to all ages.

Expect dynamic changes to activities and content as the University of Florida and Santa Fe College students in the Harn’s MUSE (Museum University Student Educators) program create connections between the museum collections, exhibitions and more.

Consider the NEW BSC as your place to chill, create and connect.


Develop an art activity, select music to accompany an exhibition or dress like a work of art. These types of projects are created by MUSEs (Museum University Student Educators) to enhance visitor experiences at Museum Nights. The MUSE program is a one-semester volunteer opportunity and an excellent way to share your love of art with others.
