What is the role of a museum professional in the COVID-19 epidemic? To produce information and give perspective. Despite the trials, we will survive this together!
Thanks also to the nurses, doctors, teachers, cleaners, guards, police, cashiers and others who do their work at their workstations! Thanks also to all those who have the opportunity to stay at home and do #telework!
The museum doesn’t run out of jobs, even though the museums are closed to the public! In Trafiikki museums, most business meetings and communications, as well as customer service and the Trafiikki online store, are currently run remotely. Despite the exceptional situation, we take care of the protection of cultural heritage, the duties of the authorities and maintain cultural services.
We want to communicate the behind-the-scenes work of the museums to you as well. Therefore, in the coming months, we will share images related to the work of museologists on our social media channels with hashtags #atthemuseum, #MuseumsTogether, and #remotely.

”The content of my work has not changed very much in an exceptional situation, but the way I do it has taken a big digital leap. Together with colleagues, we are now thinking hard about ways we could better serve our customers and present their collections on digital channels.
Meetings and working group meetings are now handled remotely. Traditional collection work also bends to teleworking. Between remote meetings, I list object collections in the database. I will review and complete the old cataloging information for online publication. ”
