Fort Heritage Precinct has a brand new face.
 
With the former museum curator (Kris Nygen) retiring after 31 years, Trisha Carleton officially took over the position on November 14.
 
“I’m getting familiar with the history here, which is really exciting and I’m hoping to learn more and getting my feet wet. There’s lots to do here,” said Carleton.
 
Dubbing herself a proclaimed museum geek, Carleton has a goal of bringing in a travelling exhibit over the summer. She is also excited to get familiar with the Fort’s history and the artifacts in the museum’s collection.
 
“I’ve been working in museums for over 12 years and this job was particularly attractive because it’s a curator position and that’s kind of my particular interest,” she explained.
 
This full-time job as curator gives her a chance to stay in one place for awhile.
 
Carleton encourages people to drop by the museum and say hello.
 
She currently lives in Edmonton, but plans to move to the Fort in January.
