NORTH CREEK - The North Creek Depot Museum has recently been accepted into the Museum Assessment Program sponsored by the American Association of Museums. The organization accepts only 100 institutions nationwide during each grant cycle.
"The program will focus specifically on how the museum can better interact with the public," said Michelle San Antonio, the museum's director.
A museum professional will visit over the summer to survey the museum and its visitors and then follow-up with suggestions on ways to develop better public programming. "The process will require us to think critically about the museum's long-term goals. It will make a significant impact not only on the museum's interaction with seasonal visitors, but also will benefit the local history education program that we are developing for Johnsburg Central School," said San Antonio.
