The Danish Jewish Museum's corps of volunteers plays an important role in serving the public and contributes to the good spirit of the museum.

Would you like to spend at least half a day a week within the museum's opening hours - and become part of the museum's daily work and strong network? Among other things, the museum thanks you for your time and your commitment with staff events.

To ensure that everyone gets the best experience as a volunteer, the museum has drawn up a policy paper for volunteers, so that expectations are aligned between the parties in the best possible way. Read the policy paper here. 

Write to the museum and introduce yourself briefly if you would like to join.

We look forward to having you on the team.



We have many talented student assistants.

The student assistants are the ones you meet on city walks, at events, in the museum shop and are an indispensable part of the daily running of the museum.

We regularly post vacancies on this page, but do not hesitate to send an unsolicited application.



We often have room for interns and have several study places in the office.

Please contact us if you would like to do an internship at the museum. Here you can gain experience with everything from mediation to registration. If you are doing research within Danish Jewish history, you can apply for a study place in our office.
