The scholarly pursuits happening within our museums are exciting, and maintaining a research staff offers many opportunities to the public. Museum funding models are changing, and so are visitors’ expectations for engagement in the processes and results of museum scholarship. Visitors want content to be relevant to their lives; they want to learn by doing and to see things they can’t see elsewhere. Hear about and help us imagine new and innovative ways to bring the work of museum scholars to the forefront of our visitors’ experiences.
