Recently, the BCHS has undertaken the partial renovation of the Children’s Museum’s facilities to better welcome families and children who come discover its exhibits and interactive stations.
The main task of the Children’s Museum Coordinator will be the planning of six children-oriented and historically themed activities hosted at the Children’s Museum alongside the Curator and the Archivist. The Coordinator will be responsible for devising a budget for each of these activities and ensuring that costs do not exceed the allocated budget. Additionally, the Children’s Museum Coordinator will be responsible for the provision of a safe, clean learning environment for children of all ages all the while guiding visitors and interpreting the exhibits and interactive stations, ensuring that children engage with the displays and that their learning experience is maximized. Lastly, the Children’s Programming Coordinator will assist the Curator and Archivists in promoting the activities and workshops organized in the Children’s Museum on the Museum’s social media platforms.
