Work placements

Work placements at the Musée d'Orsay

It is possible to undertake work experience at the Musée d'Orsay, provided that there is a placement agreement between your training institution (school, university, etc.) and the museum.
Work placements are for a minimum of one month. Apart from in exceptional circumstances, they can not exceed two months, and they are unpaid.
However, these opportunities to work at the Musée d'Orsay are limited.

Work placements are unpaid and are for a minimum of one month and a maximum of two months.
Overseas students must supply a Certificate of Insurance covering accidents while working at the museum and while travelling between their place of residence and the museum.
To apply, send a covering letter specifying your area of interest, and the training institution that is supporting you, and a curriculum vitae to:

  • Bureau de la formation
    Musée d'Orsay
    62, rue de Lille
    75343 Paris Cedex 07
