Discover Springfield’s unique history

The Springfield Museum is an educational institution authorized by the City of Springfield, Oregon to acquire, preserve, and interpret materials that illustrate the history and development of the City of Springfield, the surrounding rural areas of East Lane County, and the state of Oregon. We feature rotating art and historical exhibits, permanent exhibit displays, and provide additional educational programming for our community throughout the year. As one of Lane County’s FREE museums, our exhibits and programming provide an outstanding value for our community.

The Springfield Museum is seeking a qualified candidate for Executive Director.  The successful candidate will bring leadership experience in fundraising, grant writing, marketing, financial management, operations; a background in museum or collections management; and an ability to work cooperatively with community leaders, Board of Directors, staff and volunteers.

Full time position.  Bachelor’s or Master’s degree preferred or experience in a related field.  Salary depending on qualifications.

Recruitment for the Executive Director position at the Springfield Museum has been suspended. The Springfield Museum is transitioning management to the City of Springfield, and will be a division of the Springfield Public Library. Due to this transition, the Museum Executive Director position will be reviewed and placed in the City’s job classification system.  The City will be recruiting for a Museum professional, but probably not at the Executive Director level.

The City of Springfield posts all open recruitments on the City’s website at:
