Museos Unite!

This blog is hereby dedicated to ending the tyranny of low (or nonexistant) wages for the highly skilled graduates of museum studies programs.

Viva la revolucion!


  1. it might improve our chances if 'museum' were spelled right above ;-)

  2. I am definately a 'Museo' and have been trying to get another role for a museum for the past five years. Having worked for local and central goverment child and adult care, it seems even with the masters it is not always a guarantee of an interview, but that experiences matter.

    There are employment agencies who won't put Museum studies graduates forward for a graded museum post unless you have worked under that specific title before. At the same time if you have an administrative/executive position, these roles are often seen as generic, so the full MS studies degree may not be relevant if you want to pursue these vocations.

    My tip is that volunteering will always stand you in good stead if you want to work for a museum.
