Helping to preserve history through material collection care

As a verb, to muse is to consider something thoughtfully. As a noun, it means a person — especially a woman — who is a source of artistic inspiration. Together, it was the inspiration for the word “Museum.”


The 7th century BC Greek poet Hesiod refers to the nine daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne as The Muses. These goddesses each protected a different art form and were often the inspiration for artists and poets.


Muse Curatorial Consulting Group (MCCG) seeks to be just that for you – your Muse. Your protector for all things supporting collection care. MCCG understands that an organization’s public or private collection is the heart and inspiration of its mission, and needs to be cared for accordingly.
