Museum Governance is an important . . . discussion of the major issues facing America’s museums . . . . Malaro’s points and recommendations provide a sound foundation on which to advance the discussion and debate about the mission, ethics, and policies of the country’s museums, their governing authorities, and the professionals who manage them.”—Curator

“A very pure distillation of critical ideas concerning museum missions, the obligations of trustees (prudence, loyalty, and obedience to the law), and the need to provide a firm foundation of policy under a diverse range of museum activities.”—Stephen E. Weil, scholar emeritus, Smithsonian Institution’s Center for Education and Museum Studies

“Malaro raises important issues that face museums today. She consistently reminds trustees and other museum professionals to consider museums’ educational missions and to remember that public faith is crucial to the sector. . . . Her book should be required reading for everyone involved with museums.”—Southern Historian
