Check out this interview with Lance Grande!

Most of us have been to natural history museums–toured the exhibits, pored over collections of bugs and bones–but who decides what goes on display? How did it all end up there? And what exactly does a curator do?

Lance Grande, a curator with more than three decades of experience at Chicago’s Field Museum, takes us on a behind-the-scenes look at museums and what exactly the job of a curator entails. He is here to talk to us about his newest book Curators: Behind the Scenes of Natural History Museums from University of Chicago Press.
