Welcome to Northern States Conservation Center's pioneering training site museumclasses.org

NOTICE: We will be upgrading the museumclasses.org site software on December 18 & 19, 2017.  This upgrade will include not only better functionality and security but also an upgrade in the appearance of the site.  This new design should make the site more mobile friendly for all your Smart Phones.  The site will be unavailable starting at 10:30 pm EST on December 18 until around 1 pm EST December 19, 2017.  We will also be upgrading the user manual which will be posted as soon as the changes are complete.  Please let Peggy know if you find any issues with the site after the upgrade and we will address them as soon as possible.  Thanks for your patience.

The importance of educating museum staff is emphasized in Simon Roodhouse's 1993 article, Investing in People.

Our technology transmits information beautifully and creates new networks as professionals from around the world communicate with each other about topics of mutual concern. We have trained over 2000 museum professionals in 37 countries and 50 US states in our 12 years of existence. (Northern States Conservation Center is 20 years old.)
