We are very excited to announce the three museums selected to participate in Round 3 of the Innovation Lab for Museums – a unique incubation and prototyping program to foster programmatic and organizational innovation in the museum field.

The three museums selected are: The Jane Addams Hull-House Museum, the Museum of International Folk Art of New Mexico, and the Oakland Museum of California. These museums’ projects focus on youth education, changing demographics, and participatory experiences. The Innovation Lab for Museums is presented through a partnership between the American Alliance of Museums’ (AAM) Center for the Future of Museums and EmcArts, and funded by a generous $500,000 grant from MetLife Foundation.
