Transport links to museums: presentation by the Scottish Crannog Centre at the St Fagans conference
Barrie Andrian provided a wide-ranging and thought-provoking paper at the St Fagans conference on managing open-air museums.
Drawing on her own experience at the ScottishCentre she explored a number of themes:
- building maintenance
As well as strategies for tackling these issues. The latter theme in particular resonated with staff at St Fagans.
The Scottish Crannog Centre is 26km from the nearest main road, 10km from the nearest town, has poor public transport links, and a small local population pool. Throughout her talk Barrie explored the implications of these issues for her site, not just in terms of visitor access, but also the problems they create for staff travel time as well.
One of the key solutions that Barrie identified was adequate marketing and the generation of press opportunities that keep the Scottish Crannog Centre in the news.
