Aga Khan Museum is one of the finest museums in Toronto. Every single day is amazing for me, as I can interact with new tourist. It's been a pleasure to help/guide tourist. The management in the museum is one of the best I ever found. Sometimes it becomes hard to control the large amount to tourist, but with the patience and friendly with them helps a lot to maintain/ organize the rush of tourist.

The museum is just a few years old and could use a regime change in management and human resources for things to improve. They are secretive and don't communicate well. Colleagues work hard and are great and supportive and happy to share their knowledge across departments. It is a stressful environment and many people leave and positions are never filled. Lots of people are on contract and not treated well. It's too bad because the building is beautiful and has a lot of potential. And the mandate to educate is good too.

There were long days but you got a lunch break, Learning to prepare middle eastern marinades was my favourite part of the job. Working with world renowned Chefs as they prepared for functions, and alongside priceless works of art in the dining room. It was stunning. Being able to peruse the gallery before work.
Lunch break, staff lunches
lots of keycarded doors, makes going to the bathroom a war with technology.

The Aga Khan Museum offers visitors a window into the artistic, intellectual, and scientific heritage of Muslim civilizations across the centuries. It is a wonderful place to work. But right now, I am volunteering there.It is not a paid job but I enjoy this collaboration as a volunteer as well.

Fun work place with great management. The most enjoyable part of the job was working alongside colleagues and learning from them but also being able to watch different events occurring at the museum. There was a lot of variety in what i did each day.
