Master of Arts in Arts Administration




This report contains the details of internship completed at the National WWII Museum in New Orleans, Louisiana. It will discuss the structure and practices of the Museum’s Entertainment Department through a 480 hour internship. Alongside Victoria Reed, the Director of Entertainment, I assumed the role of Entertainment Production Assistant in June of 2015. I completed this internship with the purpose of earning an Arts Administration degree at the University of New Orleans. The Entertainment Department at the National WWII Museum is but a fraction of what makes this organization a successful attraction in the city of New Orleans and the country. The Museum is a rapidly growing institution and there is much potential to expand past traditional museum exhibits with its Entertainment Department. This report will concentrate on the internship roles and responsibilities, strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of this specific department. It will also address best practices and recommendations specific to the Entertainment Department.
