Interpretation is “an educational activity which aims to reveal meaning and relationships through the use of original objects, by firsthand experience, and by illustrative media, rather than simply to communicate factual information.” (Tilden, 1957, p. 8)
The Penobscot Marine Museum is seeking individuals with an interest in history and/or sailing to work as interpreters on our 3 acre museum campus. These positions are seasonal (May-October), with employment up to 5 days per week. Rare off-season hours may be available. Training is provided. Qualified candidates will demonstrate strong communication skills and be comfortable speaking in a one-on-one or group setting. Being a team player and engaging with the public, including children, are essential qualities. Applications are accepted year-round. In February, seasonal staffing needs are assessed. If additional interpretive staff is required, review of applicants will begin at that time and will continue until the positions are filled.
