Museums are often stereotyped as dusty storage facilities for ancient artefacts considered important by only a handful of scholars. Recently there has been effort on the part of some museumologists to reconsider the role and responsibilities of museums, art galleries and science centres as integral social institutions in their communities. The book attempts to point the way towards a sustainable future for museums by examining institutions that have found creative ways to attain a socially responsive model for cultural resource management. Accessible and engaging, the articles presented here are an excellent starting point for any discussion on what museums have been and what they should strive to be.
