Exhibit Evaluation from Start to Finish: An Example from the Children’s Museum in Boston

January 1st, 1989 | RESEARCH

In this article, Jeff Hayward of People, Places & Design Research outlines the evaluation process by summarizing the evaluation of "The Estimating Game," a traveling exhibit developed by the Children's Museum of Boston. The study assessed the effectiveness of the exhibit as installed at the Children's Museum, the effectiveness of "mock-ups" of parts of the exhibit as they were developed, and the effectiveness of teaching children the concept of estimating.
