  1. 1. Choosing a favorite museum is a difficult task; there are so many! One museum I find myself talking about constantly is the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. It is a fabulous museum. I loved the atmosphere, layout and the lovely security guard who talked at length about his favorite periods in art history. I also saw Titian´s Diana and Actaeon and Diana and Callisto (which had never been on display in the US before); that was pretty exciting. So right now, my favorite museum has to be the MFAH.

    2. My most memorable museum visit: The first time I saw a dinosaur, at the Anniston Museum of Natural History, changed my life. I didn’t know what to do or how to do it – but I knew I wanted to hang out in museums. Hanging out in museums turned into working for a museum – so I’m a pretty happy person. I will never forget the excitement I felt looking up at that giant dinosaur.

    3. I wrote a blog post on the role of the museum in the community in December. Check it out here: http://museumminute.wordpress.com/2011/12/09/what-is-the-role-of-the-museum-in-the-community-the-results/

    –Most memorable visit: Geffrye Museum London-unassuming but inspiring space with many community group visits!
