Museum Technicians

Work Environment

Museum technicians typically work 40 hours per week. The work of a museum technician is often creative and demanding. One must be in good shape and flexible, both physically and emotionally, to meet continual challenges. At times the work can be physically strenuous, but this varies depending on the nature of each assignment. More often, projects require only moderate lifting and carrying (up to 50 pounds) and bending, stretching, standing on ladders, and working in tight spaces. Work with power tools mandates safety consciousness. Work as a sound technician or as a planetarium technician requires excellent hearing, visual acuity, and color perception.
