Maybe you could find a local museum and volunteer there, see what's
involved behind the scenes.  If there is nothing close enough to your
interests offer to contribute an exhibit to a local college, or business,
or someone who has a stale display case that could use a refresh. Come up
with a plan and present it to the powers that be.  This way you can get
some experience before you go full museum.

Here is an example of what I am talking about, at the U of Delaware in the
computer sci hall.  I got some students to help set up.
