On each museum's page, you will see just basic information -- title, location, and contact information. If a description is available from Wikipedia, that is shown, too. If no information is available from Wikipedia (or it couldn't be found), I invite you to create or update the Wikipedia page. For that matter, if the data from Wikipedia is available, I invite you to update the page, too, if it needs it!

There is an experimental new feature to find similar museums. Currently, the facets for finding similar museums are: city, state, type , and income range ('INCOMECD'). The idea for including those is to help visitors, especially staff at the museums, find similar museums by useful criteria. For patrons, this might help them discover museums they don't know about based on their interests. For museum staff, this might help them discover similar museums by more administrative categories (i.e., income), to foster interaction and idea-sharing. If other categories for similarity sound useful, please contact me with ideas.
