Your Museum

Did you know that the Bengali word for museum is “jadughor”, meaning magic room. Isn’t that a wonderful thought? We all work in magic rooms.

However, those magic rooms can be beasts to manage.

From day to day operations to policy writing, from safeguarding to volunteer recruitment, from collections care to marketing, from interpretation to visitor services, museum management all encompassing. Fascinating but it can be overwhelming!
