Fresh ideas from museums around the globe in your inbox each week
Kate Roberts loves a good story–a perspective she brings to her work as Senior Exhibit Developer at the Minnesota Historical Society.
She and her colleagues have produced tons of story-rich, visitor-centered exhibits for MNHS’s flagship museum and for its network of historic sites.
In her free time Kate walks along the Mississippi River–with or without her dog–putters in her garden, and plays the flute in her community band.
