Meet the Staff, Visit Behind the Scenes, Learn About Our Collections, Exhibitions…and More
The Scottish Rite Masonic Museum & Library has launched an ongoing video project designed to introduce you to all facets of this unique institution. Our plan is to present an interesting mosaic of the people, collections, exhibitions, programs, and mission of the Museum & Library. We will give you a look at the everyday—and extraordinary—things that happen behind the scenes.
Videos will include interviews with a wide variety of staff including our curators who have a deep knowledge and passionate appreciation of the collection, and our library staff who care for more than 60,000 volumes including seminal founding documents of the Scottish Rite. With an endless realm of things to explore you might be surprised at the depth and breadth of our holdings, and the scope of the work that we do. We’ll have some fun introducing you to the range of what we collect from the quirky, to the inspirational, to the deeply patriotic. How do we choose what objects to add to the collection? We’ll tell you all about it. How are exhibitions put together? You will enjoy a look at the planning and the process. We will also lead you through the mission of our stewardship of Masonic and fraternal history as we show you how we care for the collection, invest in it, interpret it, and present it to the public.
You will meet other staff members too like our designer who makes our exhibitions look spectacular, as well as those who keep our beautiful building running and plan all of our special events. Our programs serve audiences of all ages, and we will give you a glimpse of the kinds of events you can look forward to and enjoy.
We hope these videos bring to life the Museum & Library through the words of those who make this the world-class institution it is, and through the objects in our care that so eloquently speak to the mission we strive to honor and uphold.
All of our videos can be found in the "Video Gallery" area of our website. You can also subscribe to them on our YouTube channel.
