The Exhibits Department of the San Diego Natural History Museum provides consulting services to museums, visitor centers, and other organizations. Utilizing a team approach, meetings, and design presentations, we develop the interpretive plans and exhibitions with our clients, soliciting comments and suggestions from every member of the team. In this way we can take advantage of the diverse interests, experiences, and learning styles of various team members, and build buy-in and support for all aspects of the project.

Project management is an integral part of our process. We provide meeting facilitation, note taking, issues list, budget development/management, and task management. More.
