What is MuseumExpert.org?

MuseumExpert.org was created in 2020 by a team of museum professionals to connect displaced museum people with employers. We also provide career development webinars and online programs that facilitate conversations about the future of the museum workforce. Participation in the MuseumExpert.org database and online programming is free of charge. MuseumExpert.org is a 501© 3 tax-exempt, all-volunteer organization.


Who can create an Expert” profile?

Are consultants eligible to list themselves on MuseumExpert.org?

The MuseumExpert.org database is intended to connect museum professionals with employment opportunities and may include independent consultants.


MuseumExpert.org was created primarily to connect museum professionals who have been laid off or furloughed due to COVID-19 with short- or long-term employment opportunities. Independent museum professionals who have lost work due to the pandemic are also eligible. 


You can edit or delete your expert profile at any time. 


Who can create an “Employer” profile

Any entity that has current or future staffing needs or employment opportunities is welcome to create an employer profile. You can edit or delete your employer profile at any time.


Who can browse or search Expert profiles?

Who has access to my profile information, and how will it be used?

  • Expert profiles are visible to other registered site users (registered experts and registered employers).

  • Employer profiles can be viewed only by the registered site user who created the profile.

  • Expert and employer profile data will be used by the MuseumExpert.org team for anonymized reporting to the site community and partners (e.g., total number of registrations, geographic distribution, years in the field, etc.)


How can I report a problem using the site and get help?

  • Send an email to webmaster@museumexpert.org. If possible, include a screenshot and indicate the web browser (e.g., Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, etc.), operating system, and device on which the problem was encountered.

Why doesn’t the site have job postings?

While the MuseumExpert.org site is intended to create connections, it does not aim to replace existing job boards available through a number of professional associations, including MuseumExpert.org partners.
