A museum curator is responsible for creating museum collections, often in specialist areas. They develop ways in which artifacts, archives, and artwork can be interpreted, through exhibitions, publications, events, and audio-visual presentations. Museum curators develop and design exhibits, organize exhibitions, arrange restoration of artifacts, identify and record items, organize loans and handle research inquiries.
As we celebrate the accomplishments of Clara Barton and her founding of the American Red Cross, the National Park Service would like to open what is within our care and responsibilities to the public. We are diligently working on the re-opening of The Clara Barton NHS while the objects are kept in protective storage. Please do not hesitate to contact the Cultural Resource Management of the GWMP if you have any inquiries about the care of objects or history.
