Museum Archipelago’s sponsorships help grow your product, institution, or podcast by reaching an audience of discerning museum people.

Museum Archipelago averages 3,500 direct downloads per episode. Because Museum Archipelago only sells one sponsorship per episode, listeners hear your message. Each sponsorship is read by the host, Ian Elsner. Your purchase includes a link and line of copy in the shownotes and a link in the .mp3 chapter of the ad. If you want to advertise on a particular show, please indicate at purchase. Museum Archipelago does not supply click-through data, but if you’d like to track clicks on your link, use a URL shortining service. Purchasing an ad signifies your acceptance of the Terms of Sale below.

You can purchase your sponsorship by clicking on the links under Purchase below. Get in touch with Ian Elsner for more details about rates and availability.
