Our purpose is to seed future leaders and motivate more veterans to embrace new roles of service in their community — while inspiring others to serve. And with more than 200 active members of The Mission Continues engaged in community efforts across Atlanta, veteran leadership will sustain this work long after Mass Deployment is over.
Having now worked across several different ‘types’ of museum I’m still amazed at how art museums are loathe to seriously look at what science museums have been doing (often for years). Part of this is because of the different audiences and funders that each draw, but realistically this means that science museums are generally a good decade ahead of art museums in terms of visitor experiences. Not to mention that they have had the most experience with the most demanding of visitors — parents and young children.
