Museums and cultural centers are open again, including the Nantucket and New Bedford Whaling Museums and the Martha’s Vineyard Museum. On The Point, we discuss protocols for visiting, some of the exhibits on display, and the wealth of artifacts that these museums keep in the archives. We also discuss how museum staff work with historians and researchers both locally and across the globe.
Guests on the program are:
Heather Seger Interim Executive Director and Director of Advancement at the Martha’s Vineyard Museum
James Russell, Executive Director at the Nantucket Whaling Museum
Mark Procknik, Librarian at the New Bedford Whaling Museum
