The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) operates a lignite mine and power plant in Mae Moh, Thailand. In the 1990s the environmental and health effects of EGAT's operations caused them to reassess and improve their practices. As part of this effort EGAT built a museum to be an educational resource for the public regarding mining and EGAT's emissions controlling initiatives. Our project goals were to uncover the objectives of the museum and to determine if these objectives were being met. After our analysis, short-term improvements were suggested for the museum's formal dedication ceremony by Princess Sirindhorn in June of 2007 as well as future long-term recommendations.
