September TBR


Happy Labor Day! Included in this month’s TBR list are a couple of articles related to fair pay and workplace safety in the world of museum labor.

Place to visit:

National Museum of African American History and Culture. I have been wanting to visit since it opened, but have been waiting for the crowds to be less overwhelming, for entry to be easier to obtain, and for a full day’s block of time to spend at the museum. And yes, I certainly expect to see difficult history addressed in the exhibits.

About Laura

Paralegal with Master of Arts in Teaching in Museum Education, frequent museum visitor, based in Washington, DC. I care about what museums can do, both in terms of public offerings and internal practices, to make the world a better place. I blog about museum education ("informed"), the social work of museums ("humane"), and visitor experience ("citizenry").
