There are hundreds of small community-run museums in regions around the country. It's often a struggle - not just financially, but with the changing notions of how they show their treasures, if they're to survive. But help is on the way for regional museums - a TV series called Heritage Rescue. Series consultant Brigid Gallagher and her team have turned things around for several regional museums, though changing exhibition spaces sometimes means hurting the feelings of long-time volunteers. Lynn Freeman talks with Brigid, and with Jan Brown, a volunteer for Taranaki's Mokau Museum and Art Gallery, which has undergone its makeover. She also talks with Phillipa Tocker is the Executive Director of Museums Aotearoa.
