Rock connects us. It’s why we’re here. Every generation has new sounds, new heroes, and new passions. What stays the same is that it’s music that brings people together. We’re all fans first. Even the greatest artists started with someone else’s song in their ears. The Rock Hall crew isn’t any different. We’re passionate fans who share stories about the power of rock & roll.

We are a not-for-profit organization that exists “to engage, teach, and inspire through the power of Rock & 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 & Roll. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame values innovation, collaboration and intentional growth. Over the last 25 years, we have hosted 13 million visitors onsite. Passion for music is a must.

We are searching for talented, career-driven college and graduate school students to share their skills and support Rock Hall initiatives while learning from some of the best in the industry. We offer project-based internships that push our interns to take it up a notch in a fast paced and exciting work environment. Check out our requirements below, and learn more about our specific internship opportunities by following the application link below. 

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is dedicated to making a difference. We intentionally foster a diverse & equitable museum that encourages & embraces creativity & innovation.
