About Us

Museum Development Officers

Queensland Museum’s Museum Resource Centre Network provides vital support for regional community collections across Queensland. The Museum Resource Centre Network is an important partnership between the Queensland Museum and Arts Queensland. The Network employs five professionally qualified Museum Development Officers, known as MDOs, who are based in Cairns, Townsville, Rockhampton, Ipswich and Toowoomba.

Wherever you are in regional Queensland, there is an MDO available to help you. Together we care for Queensland’s community cultural heritage collections including:

• Community museums  • Historical societies  • Local history libraries  • Archives  • Galleries  • Indigenous Keeping Places  • Multicultural groups

We provide some services for free and work with you on a fee-for-service basis on a range of projects such as:

• Strategic planning  • Policy development  • Collection management  • Public programs  • Significance assessment  • Preservation  • Exhibition/display development  • Grant writing  • Volunteer policy and procedures
