Sharing an exciting exhibition with other museums expands your museum’s reach and impact. When and how do you plan for this undertaking? How do you manage the exhibition once it has left your facility? How do you ensure a successful exhibition at each venue? Your questions – the more the better – facilitate successful exhibition development and touring. Traveling exhibits, though, are a two-way street. Sometimes you are the lender, sometimes you are the borrower. How do you find and manage interesting exhibits created by other institutions in order to expand your museum’s offerings? In this online course, learn how to find interesting exhibits developed by other museums and plan for your exhibition from idea to on the road – and beyond!
