Salary Competitive

The Happiness Museum is looking for a summer staff member from 3rd July - 8th August, with the possibility of extension. 

Opened in July 2020, The Happiness Museum is the first of its kind in the world. We all seem to be looking for happiness – but perhaps we are looking in the wrong places. We have gotten richer as societies but often failed to become happier. Therefore, the Happiness Research Institute decided to create a museum where we can bring happiness to life. Join us on our mission to ensure guests leave a little wiser, a little happier and a little more motivated to make the world a better place. Guests are given the opportunity to dive deep into the big questions in life, such as “Does more money make you happier?”, and “Why are the Nordic countries the happiest in the world?”. 

Every day at the museum is different. Some days we are joined by journalists and TV crews for interviews, others by companies looking to make their workplace happier. 


  • Managing reception: welcoming guests and selling tickets and gift shop items

  • Introducing them to the different exhibits and explaining the research behind them

  • Conducting short tours

  • Generally making sure every guest leaves with a better understanding of the things that truly make us happy.  

You will also gain insight into the workings of the machine behind The Happiness Museum, the Happiness Research Institute. Led by Meik Wiking, the Happiness Research Institute is an independent think-tank exploring why some societies are happier than others.

Join a highly diverse and international team - your new colleagues are Danish, German, Spanish, British and American. 

Fluent in English is a must, and a good level of spoken Danish is desirable.  

The working period will be 3rd July - 8th August, with the possibility of extension. Shifts will be from Wednesday - Sunday, 11am - 5pm.

We look forward to receiving your application. :-)
