Established in 2008, the Harley-Davidson Museum engages visitors of all ages in the dramatic story of one of America’s great manufacturers, in the past, present, and future of motorcycles and moto-culture. A walk through the Harley-Davidson Museum is a walk through the history of America. With an unrivaled collection of Harley-Davidson motorcycles and memorabilia, a 20-acre, park-like campus, and a calendar full of activities, the H-D Museum is one of Milwaukee’s top tourist destinations for visitors from around the globe (click here to learn more).
Central to the visitors’ experience is the rich weave of artifact-based and interactive exhibits that we curate onsite with a world-class team of curatorial and archival staff. This is an opportunity for someone who is experienced in helping conceptualize and deliver rich and engaging content in a Museum setting. Working with Museum management, the Exhibits team, the Archives team, various contractors and vendors, you and your team will be able to shape an abstract, creative vision into an interactive and engaging experience for Museum visitors. To do this effectively you will need to be adept at balancing functional Project Management steps with an iterative process that allows the creative vision to take shape and evolve as the project unfolds; in other words, you will need to balance the rigid, transactional parts of your job with the fluidity that creativity demands.
The basic qualifications for this role include eight years of related experience developing public facing exhibits, ideally in a Museum setting. This experience will have provided qualified applicants the opportunity to apply experiential design principles to broadly engaging, sustainable exhibits combining traditional exhibit techniques with high-concept design, media, and interactive experiences. A strong understanding of exhibit production techniques, exhibit materials, and project management will be critical in leading the development and implementation of projects ranging from periodic updates to 10,000 square foot temporary exhibits.
Just as important as the resume and experience you bring to the conversation, we will also be looking for the right fit for the team. To be successful in this role you will need to integrate into engaged and passionate team who come to work every day to roll up their sleeves. You will find quickly that passion and contributing to a collaborative team environment will quickly blur the lines for most roles; you will not often hear “that’s not my job.”

Bachelor’s degree in a related field of study is strongly preferred.

8 years of related experience is required.
