To Tip or Not to Tip

That's not the only question.

At this point, the thread is old news, but back in March, someone began a very interesting thread on the AAM EMP* discussion board. It was about tipping and whether or not museum tour guides should accept tips. There were a wide variety of opinions and only some agreement on the question.

Then, the ladies at Museos Unite posted about the conversation twice (here and here). If you missed this very interesting foray into assessing the value of what we do as museum professionals, definitely check it out.
