PEABODY — The pop-up children’s museum — a pilot project to gauge the viability of a permanent institution in Peabody — is slated to open March 31. But first, the museum needs some staff members.
The organizers behind CuriousCity say they are looking to fill three jobs — a Visitor Experience Manager, Visitor Experience Associate and CuriousCity Volunteer. All three are part-time positions, the last, of course, is unpaid.
Applications are due March 9 to Peabody Institute Library Director Melissa Robinson, who is heading up the pop-up initiative.
More information on each job can be found at www.livepeabody.com/news/curiouscity-is-hiring.
CuriousCity will be located at the George Peabody House and Leatherworkers Museum at 205 Washington St. from March 31 through May. It’s geared toward children ages 2 to 10 and their caregivers.
Exhibit topics include geography, farm to lunch box, sensory play, stories of the world, mindfulness, banking and philanthropy, and an open-ended creation and building space. Each exhibit will be hands-on and play-based, with focuses on STEAM education, literacy and interaction between adults and kids.
