Why Museums Matter

Anyone who has ever traveled with me can attest to my museum obsession. I have been accused of being incapable of passing any museum without popping in for a visit. Of course these types of consuming passions all have an origin or inspiration. For me, it all began with my first visit to a serious museum When I was five years old, my Mother took me to the amazing Brooklyn Museum one Saturday morning and that was it; I was hooked for life. The wonderful video below from the PBS Digital Studios makes a stellar case for museums and why they still matter in this digital age.
