Museums are places that collect, care for, and make accessible artefacts and items of historical interest, value and importance that they hold in trust for society. Museum Curators create exhibitions to tell a story around a chosen theme, be it a particular battle, place, time, person, or collection of people.

At any one time, a museum will show one or more exhibitions. To create an exhibition, the museum Curator picks items drawn from one or more collections that they own or borrow from.
