The museum is located 20 km from Barcelona, and we could say that is not full of visitors. It's not a tourist destination, although I'm sure it would be the paradise for any patchwork designer. Museum workers told me that they make heavy efforts to spread their collections, but it's very difficult to connect with a larger audience.
So...wich is the best way for these types of institutions to spread their assets and their collections? Developing an own website? Wikimedia Commons? Flickr? How can we convince the managers of these specialized museums that opening the access to their collections might be salvation?
