A museum educator may do various things in a museum. The educator featured in the video, Ryan, oversees a living history program where people dress up as they did in the past to demonstrate skills, crafts, and trades seen during that time period.
A four-year bachelor’s degree in public history or a related field is the minimum requirement to be a museum educator. A higher degree (master's degree) in a related field, which may take an additional two-three years to earn, would be more valuable.
There will likely be strong competition for these positions. Opportunities may differ based on geographical location.
