Evaluation In Museums: Jumping The Hurdles

January 1st, 1990 | RESEARCH

This paper focuses on three major issues impeding evaluation at museums: 1) the lack of understanding about evaluation and its uses in museum settings; 2) tight budgets; and 3) staff issues. The authors explain how the Memphis Museum System has addressed each issue and offer suggestions for generic solutions for each issue, which can be used by others.
