This paper introduces the anthology „Museums for the People?“ which contains a provocative and controversial essay by Josie Appleton and replies by other scholars. Appleton argues that museums find themselves between the Scylla of right-wing economic principles and the Charybda of cultural leftism. The present author critically engages with Appleton‘s arguments, highlighting her positive contribution, but disagreeing with her conclusions. Finally, the museum landscape of Great Britain is compared to and contrasted with that of Central Europe.
