Why Museums?

I think Stephen Weil best summarized why I love museums when he wrote: “Museums are quintessentially places that have the potency to change what people may know or think or feel, to affect what attitudes they may adopt or display, to influence what values they form.” – Stephen E. Weil, “From Being about Something to Being for Somebody: The Ongoing Transformation of the American Museum,” 242
