Alain de Botton explores the notion that museums are our new churches. But museums – he says – have a lot to learn from churches about getting their message across. He appeals for a complete revamp of some of our favourite museums.

Interesting Point of View from de Botton about essentially that curating needs to do a better more spiritual job. Can this be done? maybe we are trying to do this anyway, especially working outwith the institutions.
