New Mayborn Museum Director Announced
Today Baylor University announced Charlie Walters will become the new director of the Mayborn Museum…starting this August.
Walters, who’s had decades-long experience with museums, says collections – like the ones at the Mayborn - offer museum goers what he calls “learning by first hand.”
“So that’s why I really love museums, it’s their nature of first-hand learning and the idea that really, over our whole lives they’re institutions you could walk into as a toddler or as a 100 year old and you can have a very powerful experience," Walters says.
Walter says his first role here will be to meet and talk with community members to gauge their expectations for the Mayborn, and then work to meet those expectations.
