We're in the Inspiration Business!

We're a bunch of lively, fun, creative and innovative life-long learners with a diverse set of backgrounds and experiences who all play a special part in bringing science to life for guests every day.

The Science Museum's dynamic team of staff, volunteers and interns has the unique opportunity to spark curiosity, encourage discovery, and generate ideas in science, technology, engineering and math. We're highly collaborative, we aren't afraid to try new things, we value exceptional customer service, we work quickly and we recognize a good idea can come from anyone in the organization. If you're energetic, insatiably curious and a little bit quirky, we can't wait to see how you can share your time, talents and passion to help the Science Museum grow.

The Science Museum is a state agency under Virginia's Secretary of Education. All positions are posted on the Virginia Jobs website.

Our goal is to stimulate interest in the sciences, encourage inquisitive minds to seek answers and connect our exhibits to the world around us.
