Museum Archipelago

A tiny show guiding you through the rocky landscape of museums

About the show

Imagine the museum as an archipelago. Every museum has its own unique geography, but as a whole, museums form an interrelated landscape of various traditions and perspectives.

This podcast is your audio guide through that rocky landscape. Taking a broad definition of museums, host Ian Elsner brings you to different museum spaces around the world, diving into institutional problems, and introducing you to the people working to fix them. Each episode is never longer than 15 minutes, so let’s get started.
