Internship opportunities are limited by the needs of our departments, therefore, not all internships will be offered every internship session (Fall, Spring and Summer). If you have any questions about the Rock Hall’s internship program, please contact Sean Hislop by email at [email protected].

We are a nonprofit organization that exists to engage, teach, and inspire through the power of Rock and Roll. We carry out this mission through our educational programs, our library and archives, and through the operation of our world-class museum that collects, preserves, exhibits, and interprets Rock and Roll. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame values innovation, collaboration and intentional growth. Over the last 23 years, we have hosted nearly 12 million visitors onsite. Passion for music is a must.
