Question by Ashwinder: How should I go about becoming a museum curator?
My dream job would be to work as a museum curator at the natural history museum in London. I am 22 and am about to finish an MSc in Human Evolution and Behaviour, I already have a degree in Psychology. I am also volunteering 1 day a week at the museum in the Learning department which has been extremely rewarding. Any tips on furthering my dream?

I would think you’d need a masters in the natural sciences and a degree in business management. Your best bet is to ask the curator how they achieved their position and what route they took to that job.Good luck.On edit. I don’t think asking the curator,would make them feel threatened you’d take their job.By the time you realise your worthy dream,they would be retired.It never hurts to ask the source.
