Editorial Reviews


This lively revision of Museum Administration brings it up to date with fresh and relevant examples, expanded explanations of complex operations like strategic planning and financial management, and above all, attention to the changing contexts—cultural, political, and legal—that impact museum operations. Issues like diversity, inclusiveness, and access are threaded throughout the chapters so that readers understand that challenges must be tackled on many fronts. My students—emerging museum professionals—will benefit from this comprehensive introduction, as will all who work in museums, whether board members, volunteers, or seasoned staff. -- Cynthia Robinson, director of Museum Studies Program, Tufts University

This is an impressive revision to Genoways’s and Ireland’s venerable Museum Administration. Ms. Catlin-Legutko’s emphasis on the importance of strategic planning for museums, with carefully-crafted steps for completion, is invaluable, as is the chapter on finance. This book thoughtfully weaves together ethics, best practice, and “how to” recommendations with provocative case studies. Terrific! -- Nancy Bryk, Assistant Professor, Historic Preservation, Eastern Michigan University
--This text refers to the paperback edition.

Working in museums for more than twenty years, Cinnamon Catlin-Legutko believes they have the power to change lives, inspire movements, and challenge authority. And, she believes small museums are the mightiest of museums because they are dynamic work places and are nimble decision-makers.

A museum director since 2001, Cinnamon is a frequent presenter at national museum meetings and is often asked to comment on national museum issues. As the President/CEO of the Abbe Museum (Bar Harbor) from 2009 to 2019, she was the driving force behind the museum’s decolonization initiative, working with the Native communities in Maine to develop policies and protocols to ensure collaboration and cooperation with Wabanaki people. Prior to joining the Abbe in 2009, Cinnamon was the director of the General Lew Wallace Study & Museum in Crawfordsville, Indiana where she led the organization to the National Medal for Museum Service in 2008. In 2019, Cinnamon became the director of the Illinois State Museum.

In 2016 Cinnamon gave her first TEDx talk, We Must Decolonize Our Museums ( and she's been featured on the Museopunks podcast series. She’s the author of Museum Administration 2.0 (2016), The Art of Healing: The Wishard Art Collection (2004), and co-editor of the Small Museum Toolkit (2012).

Cinnamon holds a BA in anthropology and art history from Purdue University, and is a graduate of the University of Arkansas (Fayetteville) MA program in anthropology with a specialization in museum studies. She is a graduate of the Seminar for Historical Administration (now the History Leadership Institute) and joined as a faculty member in 2014. She lives Springfield, Illinois.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great text, Shoddy Quality
By Bethany Hollingsworth on March 11, 2022
This is a great book, but the production quality is terrible. As you can see in the provided photos, pages just keep falling out. I have not “broken” or “cracked” the spine and am very careful when reading my assigned chapters. Very disappointed in the quality.
