Museum Curator Career


I bring you a Museum Curator Career! This career was requested by Pary. For this career to show up in game, you’ll need Twallan’s Careers Mod:

Patch 1.29 ~ Phase Nine
Patch 1.31-1.36 ~ Phase Ten
Patch 1.38-1.39 ~ Phase Eleven
Patch 1.42-1.48 ~ Phase Twelve
Patch 1.50 ~ Phase Thirteen
Patch 1.55-1.57 ~ Phase Fourteen
Patch 1.63-1.67 ~ Phase Fifteen
Only the Base Game and World Adventures is required for this career to work. It was made with patch 1.63 and should work on all patch levels, although if it doesn’t, please let me know.
The career is in English, German, Hungarian and Brazilian Portuguese (Thanks to Laikwa and peno02 and vini for the translations!). I’ll include translation instructions at the end.

There are two versions of the career: One is based at the Business and Journalism Office, and the other is based at the City Hall. Both require World Adventures. Choose only ONE. It has ten levels and focuses on the Charisma, Logic, Writing, Handiness and Photography skills.
There are no uniforms for this career. You can edit career outfits with patch 1.31 and above, so I highly suggest using this feature to give your Sims a uniform of your own choosing :)
Right now, there are no opportunities. I am going to be attempting this soon, so watch this space!
There is one custom tone; Talk About Museum With Visitors, which builds the Charisma Skill.
Elder sims can retire from this career.
At Level 9 and 10, Sims will be able to hold Campaign Fundraisers to raise Funds for the Museum, just like the Political Career.

Career Levels

1. Tour Guide ~ You have a foot in the door – so to speak. You’ll be providing information on cultural, historical and other significant areas of interest to the groups that you guide through the exhibits. Work on your people skills, as well as keeping your informative speeches clear and concise.
Hours: 9.00am ~ 5.00pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

2.  Assistant ~ Clearly a quick study, you proved you were more than able to handle yourself as a Tour Guide and it seems someone in authority noticed, deciding you were wasted showing sticky fingered school children through the exhibits. The job title is vague, and you don’t seem to be assisting a single department, but all of them at once. Still, work hard, keep your notes organised and someone will soon realise that you’re indispensable.
Hours:  9.00am ~ 5.00pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

3. Archivist ~ No longer taking notes for everyone else, now you’re cataloguing artefacts and preserving the historical records pertaining to them as they come through the museum. You’re still called upon to occasionally provide educational services to the museum visitors, but most of your time is spent in research and processing records.
Hours:  10.00am ~ 6.00pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

4. Registrar ~ Ancient art and artefacts are very old and fragile, and it’s now your job to make sure that they all remain safe and are properly accounted for. Museums occasionally lend their exhibits to other places, and its up to you to keep the process running smoothly with your organisational and people skills learned from your days as an Assistant and Tour Guide. Keep an eye on the pieces, know what can cause damage and how best to avoid it and above all make sure nothing goes missing!
Hours: 10.00am ~ 6.00pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

5. Conservator ~ You learned a lot in your time as a Registrar about what can damage ancient pieces and how best to avoid it. The Director took notice, and has now placed you within the conservation environment. You’ll be responsible for applying scientific methods to these relics of old times, preserving and restoring them in the best possible way. Monitor and control the environment in which these objects are placed and safely store or display them in ways that prevent any further deterioration.
Hours: 9.00am ~ 5.00pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
6. Project Officer ~ You’ll need your best planning skills with this one. People who matter have taken notice of your skill with the relics and your almost limitless knowledge on how best to care for, and display them. Now you’re part of a team responsible for operating long term exhibitions, coordinating maintenance and facilitating the installation and de-installation of temporary and travelling exhibitions. Show them you have what it takes!
Hours: 9.00am ~ 5.00pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
7. Exhibition Project Manager ~ Well, you showed them. So much so, that the Director made you the lead. Now you have a team of people under your supervision and you’re expected to coordinate and promote strategic projects related to the Museum’s major exhibitions. You’ll be interacting with a lot of people, so make sure you’re prepared. Be objective, approachable and organised. History is depending on you to present it in the best possible light!
Hours: 10.00am ~ 6.00pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
8. Curator ~ Everything you’ve learned so far will really help you to shine now that you’ve been promoted to Curator. You’ll still need to keep your public relations skills sharp, both for dealing with museum visitors and with the staff. You’ve proved that you know your stuff – you know how to care for these relics and pieces of art, and how to display them to their best advantage, as well as a deep pool of historical knowledge to draw upon.
Hours: 10.00am ~ 6.00pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
9. Chief Curator ~ Liaising with the Director and other department heads is important now you’ve been promoted. Your work history, and the impressive array of skills you’ve amassed have groomed you well for the position of Chief Curator. Its up to you to select and obtain relics of interest that will be displayed in the museum. You’re still swamped with administrative duties, but they can be a little more interesting, such as negotiating the purchase of items, or arranging the loan of collections from elsewhere. A little article writing on the side, with a dash of publicity material and you could be well on your way to running the entire show.
Hours: 10.00am ~ 6.00pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
10. Museum Director ~ You’re the key liaison between the museum’s board and staff. Its a lot of management and overseeing others but that’s okay, you can take pride in the smooth day to day running of the exhibits. It’s on your shoulders to protect the interests of the museum’s collections, sweet talk potential donators and prioritise fund raising goals. You seem to spend less time with relics of the historical kind and more time with relics of… well, you should probably keep your opinions of the Board Members to yourself if you want to keep your job.
Hours: 9.00am ~ 6.00pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
