This week we talk about membership in the museum. What kinds of memberships exist? Should we, as museum professionals be reworking how we approach memberships? How much should they cost? Who do we need to be marketing to? We boast on Nina Simon, from the Museum 2.0 blog for helping us shape this discussion.
