Job Description

Rokeby Museum seeks qualified applicants for a Museum Director.

Job Summary:

Rokeby’s Director oversees all operations including exhibits, public and educational programs, collections care, and all matters relating to the museum’s property and facility. This includes all financial, personnel, and administrative dimensions of the Museum’s operation. The new director will continue the Museum’s wise stewardship of resources and expand its reach through increased visitation and an enlarged donor base. The position is currently 60%FTE.

Museum Description:

Rokeby Museum is a National Historic Landmark Underground Railroad site, located in Ferrisburgh, Vermont. Its historic house — fully furnished with 200 years of domestic belongings — provides an intimate glimpse into the remarkable Robinson family of farmers, abolitionists, artists, and authors. The site includes 90 acres, nine historic farm buildings, and a new 5,000 square foot Education Center with visitor facilities, a major award-winning permanent Underground Railroad exhibition, a gallery for changing exhibitions, and collections storage for extensive Robinson family print records and correspondence. Combined, these resources chronicle four generations, as they anticipated, experienced, and participated in the important events of American history.

Rokeby Museum has achieved honor and recognition far beyond the scope of its size — designation as a National Historic Landmark, merit-based funding from the Institute for Museum and Library Services and the National Endowment for the Humanities, and coverage in national media. The mission of the Museum is to connect visitors with the human experience of the Underground Railroad and with the lives of the Robinsons from 1793 to 1961. Rokeby Museum’s exhibits and programs explore topics focused on abolition, agriculture, and art and, guided by Rachel and Rowland Robinson’s commitment to speaking truth to power, serve to educate and inspire audiences of all ages by making connections to contemporary issues of social justice and culture.

Rokeby Museum is an equal opportunity employer dedicated to fostering diversity within our organization.
Please submit résumé and cover letter to by June 30, 2017. Electronic applications only.
