About the Blog

Welcome to the Tufts Museum Studies Blog!

The Museum Studies blog is student-centered and student-run, but it is not solely for current students. Our goal is to create and support a community of museum professionals while showcasing interesting museum news and engaging in conversation. We will frequently post reviews and questions, and would love to hear your thoughts!

New posts appear throughout the week. Check out the blog for reviews of exhibitions and projects, discussions on various ideas, and information on jobs and events. We also round up interesting news articles about museums around the world.

    How do I post a job listing on your site for executive director of a local history museum in Palo Alto, CA.?

  2. We’d be happy to add your job listing! Please email us at tuftsmuseumblog@gmail.com. Thank you!

  3. Museums are one of the most popular items on any city tour itinerary. They present history, culture, nature, some museums are simply funny and meant to entertain us

  4. Thank you for posting all of the museum jobs. For easier reference, could you please put the month and year of the posting, i see several have “1974.”

  5. Hi Garret, Good eye! The 1974 dating is a workaround that was set up when the blog was built to stop all the job postings from individually mailing to those who had subscribed the blog. We’ll start putting a posting date on them! Thanks.

  6. Dear Web Master
    Cooper Hewitt positions have closed and been filled. Kindly take the announcements off the website after they have closed. Kind regards,
    HR

  7. Hello,
    I’d be glad to take the positions down if I am notified that they have been filled; however, this information isn’t always publicly available, so I default to posting the date the applications are due, if that information has been announced. I will take down the recent Cooper Hewitt positions. If you want to talk about this further, or to let Tufts students know about openings (and when they fill) in the future, you can email me at tuftsmuseumblog@gmail.com

  8. How do I update information for our Association?

  9. You can comment here, or email me at tufts.museum.blog@gmail.com, and I’ll make the changes as soon as possible.

  10. I have MA in Museum and Heritage Studies. I have been practicing as a field guide in Ghana for 7 years now. Anyone knows of a Museum I can be relavant too? I would be happy to know. Thanks.

  11. Hi Jonathan,
    I recommend checking out our jobs page — http://sites.tufts.edu/museumstudents/job-announcements/ — and if you are looking for jobs specific to your field guide experience, I recommend using some of the links towards the top, which point you to a number of other job boards, some of which allow you to filter your search by type of position. Best of luck!

  12. Thank you for let us know about your museum studies. Looks very interested to who web love arts.

  13. Hi Colleen and Jess, thanks for sharing your passion with us.
