In this article adapted from his entry in the Small Museum ToolkitSteve Friesen emphasizes that the size of a museum in not an indicator of its worth.

He believes that because of a museums small size people often assume that it may not have the best or top of the line resources like staff, programming, or content.

While larger museums can certainly hire more staff and pay them better, it does not necessarily mean that they are the cream of the crop.

More resources does not necessarily ensure quality.
