You'll be seeing this word a lot around Michael's Museum at The Chicago Children's Museum on Navy Pier. Watch for the opening on Friday the 13th of May, 2011.
Traditionally, a curator or keeper of a cultural heritage institution (e.g.,gallery, museum, library or archive) is a content specialist responsible for an institution's collections. The object of a traditional curator's concern necessarily involves tangible objects of some sort, whether it be inter aliaartwork, collectibles, historic items or scientific collections. More recently, new kinds of curators are emerging: curators of digital data objects, and bio-curators.
Come visit Michael's Museum. Sit at the Curator's Desk, sort, classify, investigate.
