Bowdoin students are involved in virtually every aspect of the work we do here, from working at the reception desk, greeting visitors and operating the gift shop, to leading tour groups through the galleries. They help out at events too, especially the ever-popular family day. Every year a few also work as collections assistants during the academic year and over the summer, some doing focused projects and some involved in all aspects of museum work, and some participate in northern fieldwork. In each of these capacities Bowdoin students make a tremendous contribution to our success.
Over the years, often with the support of a Gibbons Summer Fellowship students and interns have produced important exhibit and outreach materials.
