Erik’s and Johannes’ work at the museum started with watering the plants. The next task was to print flyers and laminate them and hang them in the windows.
-It was easy and didn’t require much energy, but one had to be careful not to dent the plastic, Erik says.
Later on the young interns had to write a new list of prices and help to pack and store a small exhibition that was exhibited at the museum last year. Erik and Johannes also vacuumed and made onlines orders of straw for Knusbacka farmstead and a new colour cassette to the printer. An ordinary day in a small museum can be just like this.
-It was not interesting overall, Johannes states.
-I learnt that working at a museum is a more boring job than I thought, at least when there’s no visitors as when the museum is open, Erik concludes with a laugh.
