Museum Attendants

Education and Training Requirements

High School

A high school diploma is usually required for many museum attendant positions. Museum attendants must have working knowledge of their employing institution's collections. To achieve this wide range of knowledge, a broad academic background is necessary. Courses in art, biology, anthropology, archaeology, sociology, literature, and history are recommended. Communications and public speaking classes are helpful. Math and computer courses are also beneficial because most museums are installing interactive computer displays in exhibit areas.
