Interpreter (paid)

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.” (Interpreting Our Heritage, Tilden)

The Penobscot Marine Museum seeks individuals with an interest in history and/or sailing to work as members of our interpretive staff on our 3 acre museum campus. These positions are seasonal (May-October), with employment up to 5 days per week. Shifts are 5.5 to 7 hours long. 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 currently being accepted for the 2022 season.
