Summary

Inside the Lost Museum, by Steven Lubar, gives readers a privileged peek into the storerooms, boardrooms, and curatorial offices of many storied institutions. In doing so, the book offers a scholarly snap­shot of the role that museums have played throughout history, as well as the challenges they face today.
