Later this month, the Association of Children's Museums will be hosting their annual conference, Interactivity, in Philadelphia. As an ACM member, CMR will be attending the Emerging Museum portion of the event on April 27th. The information we gained from last year's conference in Denver was instrumental in the recent completion of our fundraising feasibility study which showed strong community support for the project.
This year, specifically, we will be gaining insight and education on several topics including site selection, community partnerships, and exhibit design. In addition, we hope to meet some of the other regional emerging museum representatives.
