Re: Can behind-the-scenes tours raise awareness and funds for collections care?


As a smaller run museum such tours are vital to raising an awareness of what really happens behind the scenes of museum. We give tours and often I get responses of “I remember when you took us behind the scenes” they never forget such a tour. We even had one couple donate to the museum after they had such a visit. So yes it does create more potential for donors and awareness of the work we do for our communities.
