The Uncataloged Museum: Mission Accomplished?: How often does your museum staff think about your mission? You know, that thing that says, "the mission of x is to do y?" In the past month, I've visited one museum that totally missed the opportunity to clearly share its mission, talked about mission with a group of small history museum staff and volunteers, and co-written a new mission statement for the Pickle Project. Each of those situations made me really think about why missions matter--and how we can delve deeper into them.
