The concept of the museum

You probably won’t be able to read the attached interview, because, like me, you won’t have a subscription to the Daily Telegraph. It is a very fair and scrupulous interview-cum-review of my museums book, which makes clear the ambiguities of some of my views: in person as well as in the book. In the book, I have tried to trace the changes in the way museums operate without being too judgmental about them. Each generation is entitled to do things differently. Museums have changed in complex ways in the past and will continue to do so in the future. But, of course, I have views too, which Alastair was good at extracting. Actually, it wasn’t that difficult.
