The Texas Association of Museums is holding its annual conference April 18-21 in Houston. Houston Matters finds out what will be discussed and learns what major issues museums are facing these days – especially the many in Houston's lauded Museum District.

This year's conference is titled “Taking the Pulse of Museums: Healthy Enough to Stay the Course.” We find out how the health of a museum is judged and what can be done to improve the vitality of museums in Greater Houston and across the state.

Houston Matters producer Michael Hagerty talks with Dr. Melanie Johnson, local host committee chair and president and CEO of The Health Museum, and Michael Sproat, president of the Texas Association of Museums.
