1.What is your museum about and what is your work there?
The Vent Haven Museum is the world’s only museum dedicated solely to the art of ventriloquism. I am the curator of the museum and a director as well. The Vent Haven was originally a private collection and has been open to the public since 1973.
The collection houses more than 1000 ventriloquism dummies and puppets, as well as a massive archive of photographs, correspondence, books, publications, posters, and more.
2.What is the impact on your digital activity? Do you have tips to share with your colleagues?
We have several social media accounts, but with only one employee, it is difficult to focus on it. I admire those museums who have a dedicated social media person.
