Perhaps Spring Break, a day off, a school trip or a recent vacation allowed you the opportunity to visit a museum.  While you were there did you find yourself wondering how the exhibits were designed?  How many people visit museums?  How museums are funded and advertise their offerings?  Well, there are people who have written their Dissertation on those subjects and many others.  Next time you visit a museum keep this information in mind and know there is a lot going on behind the scenes.
