I had an absolutely wonderful time interning with Museum on Main Street this summer. The work was great and the people were even better. I was very excited to research and create two online exhibits to be featured on the Journey Stories website: “Gateway of Possibilities: Ellis Island” and “On the Road to Gold Mountain: Chinese Workers and the Transcontinental Railroad.” In addition, I conducted research for a section of The Way We Worked, a MoMS exhibit in its early stages of development. I learned so much during the course of my internship and my experiences at SITES have truly been invaluable. My co-workers were such a joy to work with and we shared a lot of great moments together. I am sad that I have to leave MoMS in order to finish my last year of graduate school. I can only hope that someday I will be lucky enough to work at a place as great as SITES.
