Great health insurance, discounts at the museum shops, free entry to other museums. I didn't use it but they do offer maternity and paternity leave. The only issue is that the work schedule is not conducive to being able to actually schedule any appointments you might make.
Contract workers get no benefits. They will deduct salary accordingly for taxes. The only great benefit that was 40-50% off store merch, Uniqlo (the one nearest to the museum) free entry to most museums (science museums are not as gracious - they allow general admission if they are nice but not for special shows). You can bring your friends and family in free to MoMA - Just be nice to the security and ticketing), discounted food from the cafeteria and vending machines. If you are nice to your supervisors, an unspoken understood benefit is that if another vacancy comes up in that department they might email you about it first.
It's one of the very few paid internships in the arts in New York. Plus you get free entry into nearly all the museums in New York and a nice discount at the MoMA store and a few other stores in NYC.
Volunteers receive a considerable discount at MoMA stores/cafes. Also can get guests in for free and attend members previews.
Great perks and discounts, lots of vacation time.
