The Boothbay Railway Village is searching for a creative and energetic individual to join its team as Education Director & Curator. The Museum’s extensive campus is located in the beautiful coastal community of Boothbay, Maine. The Board and staff have just completed a strategic planning process that describes a new and vibrant vision for the museum.

This exciting new professional museum position of Education Director & Curator will have responsibility for the interpretation program at the Museum, as well as the management and maintenance of the extensive artifact collections.
