Kirtland Temple
A National Historic Landmark

Internship Opportunities

Every summer since the 1960s, college students from around the country have shared the story of the Kirtland Temple and the community that built the historic landmark. As an intern in the History Museum Management Course, students have the unique opportunity to see the Kirtland Temple from a behind-the-scenes view, learn the fascinating history of the religious community, as well as receive a challenging historic site experience that may highlight any professional resume.

Our Kirtland Temple internships are designed as both an academic program and a museum internship. Each summer our interns participate in University level courses on topics such as Latter Day Saint History and Museum Education. Each course is accredited by Graceland University for three semester hours and includes visiting guest lecturers, field trips to surrounding historic sites, and hands-on curatorial projects with the Kirtland Temple collection. Along with their academic experience and stipend, each intern gives interpreted tours of the historic landmark four to five days a week. The interpretive tours give students a professional experience in researching, designing, and managing education programs, as well as the opportunity to meet visitors from all over the world.


The Kirtland Temple will accept six to eight interns each year. Applicants are expected to complete and submit an official application by April 15th. All application requests and internship inquiries should be directed to:
