Duncan’s Museum/Park Visits


I have recently been writing about such bleak topics as war and the assassination of presidents, so here is a post about the world’s happiest topic: human’s best friend!

Anyone who knows me personally knows about Duncan.  As a dog, Duncan is not allowed within museum walls.  But for the purposes of my Weekly Museum Visits, a museum need not have walls, or be rigidly defined.  National parks–experiential learning sites where the collection happens to be outdoors, and where “museum education” is more commonly referred to as “interpretation”–have also been included.  In his lifetime, Duncan has been to a few national and other parks himself.

I blog about museum education ("informed"), the social work of museums ("humane"), and visitor experience ("citizenry").

    So does this make you a facilitator, as per Falk? Wonder if there’s anything out there on museum dog identity . . .

    Anytime Duncan can swim at a park, he is a professional hobbyist. 🙂
