Museums have evolved considerably over the past several decades, challenging preconceived notions about their nature and redefining their purpose. Beyond static repositories, they now actively engage diverse communities, contribute to community development, and play a vital role in education. This transformation extends from reshaping board dynamics and staff responsibilities to innovative exhibits, curation methods, and educational programming.

Embark on a journey with five seasoned museum professionals in this illuminating panel discussion. Hear their unique perspectives on navigating the evolving landscape of museums as they candidly share experiences, current challenges, and thought-provoking insights into the future of these cultural institutions.

Panel Moderator: Malinda Horton, Executive Director, Florida Association of Museums.  Panelists: Grace B. Robinson, Executive Director, Gadsden Arts Center & Museum; Tiffany Baker, Museum Director, Florida Historic Capitol Museum; Alan Hanstein, Executive Director, Challenger Learning Center of Tallahassee; and Russell Daws, President/CEO, Tallahassee Museum.

Presented in conjunction with the Florida Association of Museums and Visit Tallahassee.
