Master Planning

Whether you are changing or expanding your current building, planning a new facility, or launching a new museum from scratch, the Science Museum of Minnesota can help. Our experienced administrators will help you formulate a Master Plan, a process for examining every aspect of your museum (exhibits, programs, audiences, education outreach, collections management, publications and more). A strong plan will not only prepare your institution for growth, but also ensure your organization is aligned with the needs and interests of your communities.

Working together, your staff and ours will develop provisional goals, criteria, assumptions, topics and experiences that will inform the Master Plan. Through careful review and revision, these initial goals, criteria, etc. will provide a framework for defining success and a map for achieving it. We will work with you to provide the final Master Plan documents in the form and style that will to be of best use for your internal and external audiences.
