Museum magazine

Museum, the Alliance’s award-winning magazine, addresses the issues and challenges facing museums today and is a must-read for those who work for museums and those who love them.  Published bi-monthly, recent issues have focused on engaging new audiences, trends in museum education, strategies for creating an ideal board, and a futuristic view of museums.
