Who are we, museums?
SEPTEMBER 10, 2019
Then, I get home, confined to the couch with a terrible sinus headache, to find ICOM was debating the definition of a museum. ICOM matters because museums are a global phenomenon. Over the years, I’ve enjoyed interacting with all the international museum folks at conferences, particularly at AAM. ICOM might not seem to matter to our workdays in American museums, but it does matter global. People can only define museums on what we have now.
