During the summer of 2013 I completed an internship in collections at the Dr Pepper Museum and Free Institute in Waco, Texas. For my internship I processed a large incoming donation while also completing other duties as assigned such as working on exhibit design and educational programs for the museum. In this paper I discuss my various experiences and the methods I used while completing my internship. I also focus on the various issues that I encountered while processing the donation and how I chose to address those problems. Overall, my internship was a rewarding experience and an in depth look at collections management along with the various other aspects of museum work.
