Historic house museums face a wide range of challenges in today’s continually changing environment. Traditional methods no longer seem to be as successful but new approaches seem uncertain or risky.

This one-day AASLH workshop will help you analyze your operations, programs, and events to make better informed decisions and identify ways to make your house museum more distinctive and relevant.

The workshop includes:

  • An overview of the most important opportunities and threats facing historic sites in America based on the latest social and economic research, with a discussion on how they may relate to your house museum.
  • A series of field-tested tools and techniques drawn from such wide-ranging sources as non-profit management, business strategy, and software development.
  • Profiles of historic sites that are using new models to engage with their communities to become more relevant, are adopting creative forms of interpretation and programming, and earning income to become more financially sustainable.
  • A key component of the workshop is a facilitated brainstorming session to reinvent an event or program.
