Museum Technicians

Advancement Prospects

Experienced museum technicians with a history of devising and contributing significantly to museum displays are well situated to move into more specialized positions. A museum technician may choose to specialize in the graphic arts and eventually seek a position as a graphic artist in a large, metropolitan museum. Some specialize in exhibit design and choose to take continuing or additional courses in architecture and design with the intention of tackling major exhibitions, possibly including collaborating with other museum employees to address museum renovations. Others may continue to study art conservation or restoration and move into the position of conservation technician or preparator, supervising technicians and working with curators to present exhibits.
