The Museum Club

Museum Club members serve as a bridge between the museum and the student body.

Interested in learning more about museums? Want to play a part in the reopening of the new Hood Museum of Art? Join the Museum Club!

The Museum Club brings together students who share a common interest in art, material culture, and museums. Museum Club members serve as a bridge between the student body and the museum by promoting awareness of the Hood’s collections and resources, planning and hosting student events, and advising Hood staff.

  • All undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to join, regardless of class year or familiarity with museums and/or art. Space may be limited.
  • The Museum Club will meet on Thursdays from 5-6pm while classes are in session. The first meeting for fall term will be on October 4.
  • Club members will help plan the student party celebrating the museum reopening.
  • Club members will work together to organize lively student-centered events throughout the year.
  • Club members must be available to attend additional museum and/or campus events as a volunteer representative of the Hood at least once a term. Examples may include the annual Mimosas at the Museum event in June, Orientation Week, etc.
  • Club members will also have the option to sign up for paid shifts as a student visitor services guide through Dartmouth’s Student Employment Office. This is not a requirement for participation in the Museum Club.

Why is the Museum Club awesome? Club members will:

  • Work with museum staff to launch new student engagement initiatives and reopen the Hood after its multiyear expansion project.
  • Plan and host fun and creative events at the Hood for students and campus audiences.
  • Be the first to get museum swag and behind-the-scenes opportunities.
  • Gain experience working with museum professionals in a museum setting.
  • Meet other students who are interested in museums/the arts over weekly meetings with food.

To apply, email [email protected] with your name, year, and a brief explanation of why you would like to participate (max. 150 words) by September 28.
