What do Curators do?

Curators recommend the acquisition of paintings, photographs, sculptures, documents, and other museum/gallery artifacts. They research the origin/history of artifacts, develop the storyline/theme of displays/exhibitions, and supervise curatorial assistants/other museum technicians. They may specialize in particular collections.

How to become: Curators

To be a curator, you must have a bachelor's or master's degree in museology, art history or a field related to your area of work.

Many recent entrants have an undergraduate university degree, and almost 2 in 5 have a graduate degree.
