We are looking for a literature loving intern to help organize our impressive collection of over 30,000 books. We need someone to help sort, catalog, and research pricing of our first edition novels, rare finds, even books signed by their authors. This internship has the possibility to develop, giving interns the chance to work on other detail oriented research projects. Come work in our thought provoking atmosphere that has inspired dozens of authors to write about us—including James Patterson who devoted four pages to The O Museum and even gave our exact address in his best-selling novel Four Blind Mice!


Desired Skills:

- Passionate reader

- excellent categorical skills 

- great research skills

- detail oriented and organized

- motivated self-starter

- must be positive, outgoing, and creative


- must be living in the Washington DC area 

- to apply for this internship, you must currently be enrolled in an undergraduate program

-submit resume on Handshake

This is an unpaid internship. We will work with you and your school if you wish to get credit. Please email with any questions. 


Within all interns’ first week at The O Museum in the Mansion, they are not given a project. Instead, they help out with different aspects of The O Museum. These tasks will not necessarily correlate to what they initially thought their internship would center on but this helps us to get to know the interns before giving them a definitive project. By having them help with spur of the moment tasks their first week, we are able to better tailor internships to be a good fit for the intern as well as for The O Museum.

As a private luxury hotel, events venue, and museum the Mansion is a haven for CEO's, rock stars, celebrities, and politicians (FBI Director J.Edgar Hoover's G-men lived here in the 30's). We have 23 uniquely themed guest rooms & suites; a two story Log Cabin, John Lennon Suite, Mrs. Rosa Parks room (she lived with us for 10 years), a ballroom, large and small meeting spaces, a hidden wine cellar and more.


About O Street Museum

The O Street Museum Foundation promotes and embraces life, from every culture, resulting in a wide - ranging collection of paintings, photographs, sculpture, books, artifacts, and music, from all over the globe. These works celebrate life, culture, all religions, science, education, and more.

The only museum of its kind, O Street Museum Foundation has always been dedicated to exploring the creative process. The collection rotates and changes daily. From the art, to the music, to the surroundings, no visit is ever the same. From artist’s letters, to animation stills, to written manuscripts, to one of the largest "raw and exposed" music collections, our galleries are not limited to one genre.

O Street Museum offers an immersive, tactile experience where you will hear rare studio cuts, leaf through manuscripts, touch sculpture and tour through a multitude of architectural styles. We offer a wide range of programs including artist-in-residence, live concerts, art-leasing, jammin', raw & exposed, songwriter's workshop and children’s programs.
