The Château de Chantilly is a historic château located in the town of Chantilly, approximately 30 miles from Paris. The Château de Chantilly is home to the Condé Museum, the largest collection of historical paintings in France after the Louvre, and one of finest collections of illuminated manuscripts and precious ancient books. The Château attracts approximately half a million tourists each year.
The internship will be a combination of work and research. The intern will be required to learn about the collection at the museum to prepare for conducting tours in English. The intern will also work in the area of communications, with a focus on developing and updating materials for English-speaking tourists, mainly from the United Kingdom. The intern will also carry out administrative duties as assigned by the staff at the Château.
This is an excellent opportunity for students of art history and for students with an interest in French history and culture.
This internship was developed through an alumna; and internship funding has generously been granted by the Florence Gould Foundation.
