Our values

We define museums broadly

Two students bending over a touch tank at MAST Aquarium

We’re interested not just in art museums or natural history museums as some programs are, but rather in all kinds of museums – children’s museums, science centers, zoos and aquaria, and national parks, for example.

Museums can make the world a better place

The power of museums lies in the role they play in learning, wellbeing, and community building. We focus on these things specifically.

Museums are learning institutions

Museums are part of a much larger informal learning infrastructure, a community ecology that includes libraries, community-based organizations and more. We focus on transferrable skills across this ecology.
