Making Museums Matter
Author: Stephen E. Weil, Marc Pachter
Description: Stephen E. Weil has long been considered one of the museum community's most insightful (and frequently wittiest) commentators. In this volume of twenty-nine recent essays, his overarching concern is that museums be able to "earn their keep"-that they make themselves matter-in an environment of pontentially shrinking resources.
Written by Stephen E. Weil experienced and witty commentator on the museum community who is currently the Scholar Emeritus in the Smithsonian Institution's Center for Education and Museum Studies, Making Museums Matter is an outstanding selection of informed and informative essays about the difference that museums make, their role in preserving and showcasing history and art to the public, cost-related problems plaguing museums today, and a great deal more. Making Museums Matter is enthusiastically recommended as a most thoughtful and authoritative treatise on these notable and noble institutions.---Midwest Book Review
