Museum-Voices-logoMuseums are exciting, dynamic places. There are curators conducting cutting-edge research, collection managers carefully cataloging specimens, educators inspiring the next generation of scientists, exhibit designers crafting immersive experiences for visitors, and other activities occurring every day that many people don’t associate with museums.

Museum Voices is an opportunity for staff and graduate students to share their experiences with the world. The blogs may be run by individuals or entire labs or departments. Each has a unique perspective, and combined, the voices weave a colorful picture of museum life and discovery. Come see what we’re up to and join the conversation!
