Colgate University boasts a total of four museums and galleries — impressive for its relatively small campus. Included in the four are the Linsley Geology Museum, Clifford Gallery, Longyear Museum of Anthropology and the Picker Art Gallery. The Longyear Museum of Anthropology is home to culturally significant objects from all over the world, including Africa, Oceania, Europe and the Americas. Similarly, the Picker Art Gallery offers students, faculty and other community members the opportunity to experience art across different cultures and periods of time with the 11,000 fine art objects in their possession. To enhance the learning experience between students and these art pieces, the museums also offer student internships.

Students interning at the museums expect to spend around 8-10 hours per week on a variety of projects offered to them. Some tasks involved in exhibition development work include research, label writing and design work for shows. These jobs allow students to understand the behind-the-scenes components that go into creating the displays that people see when they visit museums. Senior Audrey Chan, an Art and Art History concentrator, has participated in all of these undertakings but has now moved on to more deeply involved projects.
