The Junior Curator program allows youth to take on the roles of museum staff to research, create, and install a museum display. This program encourages youth to think about historical events, people, places, or objects in museums. Our goal is to make youth more aware of their place in history and encourage further exploration of objects, photos, and writing exhibit texts.
Youth will: Research using primary and secondary sources, write exhibit text and object labels, design and implement a museum display. The Junior Curators’ museum displays will be on view at the Lyon County Museum for a 3 month period.
