Why I Love the City Museum

Next week I am getting married, so this week I am thinking a lot about love. So what museum do I love?

  1. Interesting post, Mark. Any list like this is prone to attack for ommissions, or questions about inclusions. As you articulate no criteria for how you set the list, it is even more open to critique. It makes me wonder what you wanted to accomplish by posting it.

  2. Often when starting off planning sessions, the first question is “What are the best in the field?”. After 20 years working in museums, have assembled lists of what I consider to be the “best in the field”. Those lists will be posted on the blog for the purpose of benchmarking.
