Small museums make up a large percentage of BCMA’s membership and we are dedicated to serving their needs. Understanding that people working in small museums face a unique set of challenges, BCMA has created a set of Tools with them in mind. The Small Museums Toolbox showcases user-friendly, practical, and easy-to-implement resources geared towards anyone working in small museum.
