Befriending museums

, : Befriending museums. Recreation Canada 51(3): 27-29

The article discusses how Canadian museums rely on assistance from volunteers. Volunteers form the backbone of the human resources needed to sustain museum activity; 25 000 of them across Canada provide hundreds of thousands of hours of unpaid work each year to supplement the work of less than 50% as many professionals. With growing budget deficits, Canadian museums need friends. Millions of people visit museums in Canada each year, but only about 2% take out membership.
