Historic St. Mary’s City, a museum of living history and archaeology, located on the site of Maryland’s first capital (1634-1695), seeks qualified individuals for museum interpreter positions in the Education Department.  These are full-time (30 hour/week), seasonal positions ($12.00/hour) from the beginning of March through November 2020, including weekends.


Interpreters work in uniform or 17th-century costume (provided).  Interpreters use first-person techniques (portraying an historical person at the plantation) or third-person techniques (non-character, in either uniform or costume).  These unique positions provide the opportunity to teach history to visitors of all ages and backgrounds in an outdoor classroom format at the museum’s living history sites: the Godiah Spray Tobacco Plantation, the Woodland Indian Hamlet, the Maryland Dove (a square-rigged ship), or the reconstructed Town Center.  Enthusiasm, team mentality, and desire to learn and develop 17th-century skills are must.  Candidates must also have excellent communication skills and be able to work with small and large groups.
