“Museums are a vital part of how we tell the stories of who we are, who we've been, and how we will live together. They maintain our cultural heritage and teach us about all the ways we are different and the same. Reflecting the diversity of that heritage is a critical part of museums' work. We cannot claim to be truly essential to society if we are not accessible to all.”
— The American Alliance of Museums
