Museums and Cultural Centers

Industry Outlook

The Occupational Outlook Handbook reports that employment of archivists and curators is expected to increase by about 9 percent and 10 percent, respectively, faster than the average for all occupations, through 2028. Museum technicians and conservators will also have faster than average employment growth, 9 percent. As museums focus on education and service to the community, public programs and education staff are likely to be somewhat protected. Archivists, especially those with expertise in electronic records management, will be in demand as public and private institutions require organization of and access to records and information. Opportunities for curators will be fueled by continued public interest in science, art, history, and technology. However, museums and other cultural institutions are often subject to funding cuts during recessions or periods of budget tightening.
