From England to Poland, Egypt to Saudi Arabia and many places in between, Gillian Scott has produced museum exhibitions around the world. When she found herself with a job offer from the Australian Museum, she says she couldn't pass it up.  

"You can't turn down something like that. I've moved around a lot my career and I think it keeps things fresh, it reinvigorates you and it allows you to collaborate with so many different people. For me to come to the Australian Museum — that has stupendous collections — over 18 million natural history and cultural collections, and an Egyptology Collection even! Who could turn that down? I would have been foolish to have said no." — Gillian Scott.
