Museum Curator Resume Template

A Museum Curator manages the cultural and historical collections in a museum. All types of museums require at least one curator while large museums can have as many based on their exhibit categories. Often with a profound background in history, archaeology and anthropology, the museum curator ensures only that the most authentic artifacts are exhibited or kept in the museum, from the smallest coin collection to large Egyptian sarcophagus and art statues.  Some will commission accurate reproduction in lieu of highly fragile or expensive artifacts for exhibition and transport rather than using the original.
