Abstract: 
Over the past two decades museums in Australia and America have expanded at a rapid rate. Much of this has been at the expense of careful planning and evaluation, particularly in the areas of public programs and information services. This paper exhorts the need for urgent attention to the issues of 'revision' and 'social responsibility' in an effort to discover ways of making these institutions more relevant to the communities they service. Taking account of the wider environment in which art museums operate is crucial to these concerns. The dramatic changes that have occurred in art education and art historical practice over the last ten years as well as the rationalisation of management in many art museums in line with principles of market economics are discussed with rference to selected American museums. The implications for Australian museums are also examined.
