You are to visit a museum of your choosing

Double spaced, font, 12. Final Project: 10-page written report and proposal. This is a two-part paper.

You are to visit a museum of your choosing. It can be local, in your home town, or someplace else. During the current Pandemic, museums have been closed for a number of months.

Some have recently reopened but others remain closed. If you are not able to physically get to a museum or you feel uncomfortable doing so, you can make a virtual trip. Students frequently take family or friends along on these museum visits. If you do bring other people, please be sure to include their responses to the visit as well. If you do a virtual visit and want to take
someone along that is great too.

Again, share their reactions in your paper.

For part one: write an evaluation of the museum’s exhibits, program offerings and
website.

Consider what they have been doing to attract visitors while they are
closed and how well they are doing it.

What sort of advertising do they do to let?
people know about their special events and other programs? Critique what you
like and don’t like.

Explain what works well and what needs improvement. It can
be anything that you notice. Perhaps the exhibits are interesting but the label text
is too small to read.

Or if the exhibit is online how easy is it to navigate? Is it
visually interesting and is the font style appropriate? As museums have
reopened, most have changed the traffic patterns in their exhibits as well as in
the other public spaces. If you are able to physically go to the museum, how is
this working out?

Can you see what you want to in the exhibits or is it confusing?
– is there a clear pathway when you enter the exhibit space? If there are online
exhibits how easy are they to navigate and do they provide you a quality
experience? Include anything else that occurs to you.

This is an observational 3 and opinion paper. There are no right or wrong answers, only your thoughts on what you experience.
Part two: write a proposal with detailed recommendations on how the museum
could attract more visitors in your age group. If you are young and single you will
probably be looking for different think than if you are a parent with children.
