A Closer Look at Exhibits

January/February 2014

Exhibits are central to the work of science centers and museums, and to the experience of our visitors. This issue of Dimensions draws upon the wisdom of our field, compiling practical tips and guidelines from exhibit professionals working in a variety of museums and companies around the world. These professionals share their ideas, advice, and lessons learned on key topics related to exhibit design, development, and production—everything from exhibit technology (whether high or low tech), to safety guidelines, to inexpensive exhibit production, to prototyping, to partnerships, and much more.
