A dream job???

As ‘Web Mistress’ for The Geological Curator’s Group, I am responsible for maintaining an up-to-date list jobs. I came across the following little gem on a job description for a vacancy at the ‘Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre’ and thought that it was too good to go unmentioned:

With a few exceptions, museums are quiet, peaceful sanctuaries. They are full of artifacts from throughout the ages, both human and nature made, which tell us stories about our past and inform us about our place in the world both today, and in the future. People often visit museums to think, to reflect, to draw, and to write. They are reflective places where visitors can spend hours, peacefully drifting through time…

At least, that is the side of museums that the public sees. The engines that keep those peaceful sanctuaries humming are busy, and full of stress, deadlines, projects, and phone calls.
