Having the evidence

Karen Wise, vice president of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, Los Angeles, California, talks about how the evidence for the profound issues of our time lies within the walls of museums like hers. This interview was recorded on October 3, immediately after an ASTC Annual Conference session, “Transforming Natural History Museums: Our Relevance and Future,” at which Wise and other natural history museum administrators discussed the challenges internally and externally when natural history museums change themselves, their offerings, and their role in society.
