Museums can have a bad rap of being stuffy and traditional, but we enjoy a good (or bad to be honest) joke every once in awhile! Museum professionals also deal with some interesting job-specific issues which can often create a new brand of humor. Here are some of our favorites!
When ARCS, the Association of Registrars and Collections Specialists gives you, the member, your own accession number. Touché ARCS, touché.
When the Smithsonian responds to sass, with more sass.
When you just feel like seeing if visitors are even paying attention.
When the signage becomes quite literal.
When you start to appreciate the beauty in the mundane.
When museum texts meet Better Book Titles.
And there’s always room for a strong pun-game:
