When I grow up... I want to be a Curator
A Curator is someone who spends every day working with objects from our past -- things like photographs, furniture, or old dresses, uniforms, radios, and even ships. Curators know how to preserve the things of the past so they will be around for centuries to come. They also research the history of the objects in their care.
Knowing about history is important. History tells us how our world was made, what succeeded in the past and what failed. That’s the only way we can learn. If you love history, you might want to grow up to become a curator.
