Hunter House goes to New Orleans!

Last week, our Museum Experience Coordinator and Director ventured to the 2019 American Alliance of Museums Conference in New Orleans. It was hot! And rainy. But, it was such a great experience and they learned so much from the many presentations they attended.

Our Director, Jackie Spainhour, was there to present a talk on her upcoming book Museums and Millennials: Engaging the Coveted Patron Generation. The room was packed- people even sat on the floor! Everyone was excited to see what museums are doing to get those working adults involved in their facilities- and how we can do better.

When not learning about how to be more inclusive, do better programs, and create awesome exhibits, they hit the town! There were so many fun places and museums in New Orleans- and the people were so friendly.
