Waddeston Manor

Oct. 1, 2019

I don't have too much to say about this stop on the OPP program. I was disappointed in the way we were treated by the staff at this site- both the guest services staff and the senior curator. Something I learned here was what not to do when students come to you wanting to learn more about museum management. I also learned about the importance of clearly labeled way-finding and guest service staff training.

The manor was beautiful but really after you've seen a few marble and guilded late-1800s palaces, you've seen them all.

If you're looking into the Open Palace Programme know that this stop will most likely not be on the itinerary for future programs.
