Facts – Museum
According to The World Museum Community, there are more than 55,000 museums in 202 countries.
The purpose of modern museums is to collect, preserve, interpret, and display items of artistic, cultural, or scientific significance for the education of the public.
Early museums began as the private collections of wealthy individuals, families or institutions of art and rare or curious natural objects and artifacts.
Types of museums vary, from large institutions, covering many categories, to very small institutions focusing on a specific subject, location, or a notable person.
Roles associated with the management of a museum largely depend on the size of the institution, but every museum has a hierarchy of governance with a Board of Trustees serving at the top.
