Museums are learners too. Museums encourage lifelong learning for their visitors and themselves. Through an openness to growing, adapting, and revising, museums acknowledge multiple ways of knowing and build a reciprocal relationship with their community. Our stories are always evolving, and our understanding and interpretation of those stories must evolve as well.

Reconsidering Museums has resources to help your museum learn more about positioning themselves as learner, sharing authority with their community, and encouraging dialogue. Find the toolkit here.
