Rebecca Turnbull

For almost 20 years Rebecca has worked within the museum sector in the areas of collections management, curatorial and coordinating volunteers. These roles have been based in not only large cultural heritage institutions including house museums but also with regional and community museums. Rebecca is currently Curator at Hawkesbury Regional Museum where she has helped to develop the museum from the ground up.

As well as qualifications in a Masters of  Museum Studies and Bachelor of Education, Rebecca’s professional experience has included working with a variety of museum collections to share their stories and providing hands on training for volunteers in collections management and interpretation.



My passion for museums, social history and historic buildings led me into the museum sector and nothing delights me more than being able to foster that same enthusiasm when working with others, particularly volunteers and community museums, to make a difference and help them achieve their goals. I can highly recommend the standards program for any museum large or small as a very worthwhile and satisfying experience.
