Museum, the Alliance’s award-winning magazine, addresses the issues and   challenges facing museums today, and is a must-read for those who work for museums and those who love them.  Published bi-monthly, recent issues have focused on engaging new audiences, trends in museum food and drink, salaries for museum employees, and museum accessibility.
