Museums and Cultural Centers


Museums and cultural centers come in an array of sizes and kinds. The smallest of these institutions may be open a few hours a week and staffed by one or two people; the largest are run along the lines of a corporation. In sharp contrast to corporations, however, most museums and cultural centers are nonprofit, so their financial support comes from philanthropic foundations and from federal, state, and city agencies. Since a large degree of support comes from the public sector, museums and cultural centers pay close attention to the interests of taxpayers in their communities.
