This video series invites young people (and their adults/caretakers/friends/pets) into the world of museum work. Various episodes will highlight what different people who work in a museum do all day, why we do what we do, and how what we do can enrich a visitor’s experience in person or online.
In “How it Works: What’s in a Label,” we go through the information that is included in a museum label and invite viewers to create labels and captions of their very own.
