Building Museums Symposium 2018

Save the date! Mid-Atlantic Association of Museums (MAAM) presents Building Museums Symposium 2018: March 9-11, 2018 Philadelfia, PA

Building Museums is a national symposium on the process, promise, and pitfalls of planning and managing museum building projects. This symposium is for architects, museum leaders, planners, project managers, technical experts, and all those who plan or implement new construction, renovation, preservation, or expansion projects for museums.

Building Museums 2018 symposium is organized under three inter-related themes: Vision, Implementation, and Sustainability (or Life after Opening). The content of each day will reflect these themes across a broad range of museum sizes and scales, budgets, scope of building projects, disciplines, and collecting vs. non-collecting institutions. It will actively engage participants in sessions and discussion. The program will include expert keynote addresses, behind-the-scenes museum tours, two receptions, and a workshop.

Please find the preliminary PROGRAM here. Detailed information is available on the official website of MAAM

Whether your institution is a small historic site under renovation, a mid-sized art museum planning an expansion, or a large children’s museum building a new facility, this symposium is for you.
