Tourism, Museums and Visit London

Interesting meeting at MLA, London round table meeting on how to make Tourism work for Museums. Main issue for the museums around the table seems to be the fact that Visit London does not work for us - too expensive for too little return, we feel. What is astonishing is that only about 20 museums in London (and c 10 nationals) are members! This is a breath-taking, and must be fuel to ask Boris to make sure that Visit London does something to help outer London Museums.

Before that I went to UCL to give talk on basic design for web sites. Very good short talk by Donna Haugh who can pack a lot in in a short time!. Afterwards to CSM for education project I am managing for CSM in conjunction with Camden Council, Sir John Soane Museum, Foundling Museum, Hunterian Museum and the British Museum.

Quite a good crit, the museum staff all very good and the students have just done enough preliminary work to make it a success.
