EXPERIENCE

Access, engage, embody
The M is more than a museum. Welcoming diverse audiences means constantly rethinking how to provide access and encourage engagement from the community.

By questioning, listening to, and engaging with the community, the M is always developing something just for you. How do you experience the M? When you bring your authentic self to the M, you participate in building the M of the future.
