A museum’s cultural and historic collection is managed by a content specialist in the person of a heritage keeper or Museum Curator. Small museums also repose the administrative and business functions on the Curator while large museums containing various artifact categories can have curators who specialize in managing each of those categories. With an extensive background in archaeology or history, the museum curator ensures that only authenticated artifacts are exhibited or kept in the museum. They are tasked not only in exhibiting these to the public but also their preservation and security for future generations.
