Museum curators acquire, organize, preserve and oversee collections of art and valuable historical items. It is their responsibility to catalog displays and to create written descriptions of historical or artistic items. They further investigate items and offer educational information about them to the museum staff and to the general public.
Sometimes the curator of a museum is also the director. If that is the case, the curator would then have to handle fundraising and promotion of the museum.
