Exhibit Makeovers : A Do-It-Yourself Workbook for Small Museums Paperback / softback

Part of the American Association for State and Local History series

Paperback / softback


Since its publication in 2008, Exhibit Makeovers has been a useful do-it-yourself handbook for museum staff and volunteers.

Exhibit Makeovers is a workbook that provides grounding in interpretive principles, how-to-advice, step-by-step guidance, and moral support for in-house exhibit planning and design. The revised and expanded 2nd edition preserves the supportive tone and easy-to-follow steps that make the original Exhibit Makeovers so user-friendly.

Significant revisions-especially in the technology arena-and additions make this new edition a must-have addition to any museum's toolkit:* New emphasis on visitor input, with step-by-step guidelines for evaluation studiesduring planning and design. * New text and worksheets to guide development of interactives, and ensure varied levelsof visitor participation. * Focus on affordable software to help with exhibit planning and design, as well as low-cost technologies that can vary and deepen the visitor experience. * Brand-new chapters on exhibit design, production, and installation, written by theexperienced team responsible for in-house exhibits at a thriving, mid-size museum. Following the same pattern as the 2008 original, the revised Exhibit Makeovers guides users through step-by-step processes of a single-case makeover, development of a new exhibit, and renovation/renewal of an entire gallery or museum.
