Every day, I get at least a couple of emails asking questions about museums, museum planning, exhibition design or museum strategic planning. Thought I would put together a list of answers to “Frequently Asked MuseumPlanner Questions”.
How to Increase Museum Attendance

Museum Strategic Planning, Part II – Museum Feasibility Study

Starting a Museum

Museum Trends is my attempt to understand the direction that museums are heading to better predict the museum of the future.
“Starting a Museum”, the book
I have started work on a book tentatively called “Starting a Museum”. More than “How to Start a Museum”, the book will explore the question “How could a museum be started?”. I will need lots of help and hope that I can call on the readers of this blog as active participants in the creation of the book. More about the planned book…
