About this product
- DescriptionPerhaps your museum's archives have run out of space, or its public programs have outgrown their facility. Perhaps a generous dor or an energetic campaign has provided the funding for a revation, a new wing, or a new building. Whatever the circumstances, small and mid-sized museums can find themselves taking on a construction project. But those responsible for seeing that it's done right -- board members, museum professionals, and skilled museum volunteers -- are seldom experienced in the high-stakes world of construction management. This handbook outlines the processes and explains the complexities of revating and building facilities. It highlights what issues to consider and what questions to ask; it outlines steps from needs assessment and project planning to design development, budgeting, construction, and, finally, settling into the new space; it provides the vocabulary and framework for the specific challenges of museum construction. Written by staff members at the Minnesota Historical Society who have consulted on scores of building projects, this volume helps museum professionals and volunteers understand the construction process to achieve their goals in a time of tight budgets.
