The National Museum of American Diplomacy will be the first museum in the nation dedicated to telling the story of diplomacy and of the diplomats who have served and sacrificed for their country since the founding of our nation. Our mission is to educate and inspire all visitors through engaging programs and exhibits that showcase how diplomacy has shaped our nation’s history and how diplomacy continues to play a vital role in their lives. Our first major exhibit, developed in partnership with Smithsonian Exhibits, will cover sixteen stories, spanning from the alliance with France which contributed to the success of the American revolution, to pivotal moments in history such as rebuilding Europe after World War II, to the far-reaching work of diplomats in the field today. The Diplomacy Center is also working with the Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum to unveil the Eye, an award winning in-museum mobile experience.

Intern(s) will contribute to the opening of this exhibit and continual content updates through video editing projects. Previous projects included editing an interview with a diplomat who survived over a year in captivity during the Iran Hostage Crisis and primary source footage from East Berlin during the Cold War. Some projects will be cross-posted on our website, social media, and used for high stakes fundraising. Other projects will be a part of the exhibits through the Museum of Diplomacy Eye.
