New collections constantly being acquired by the Martha's Vineyard Historical Society have created the pressing need for a new facility. The project team conducted a benchmarking exercise to compare it with other area facilities. Both to help the museum and to become familiar with its operation, a prospective maritime collection was inventoried and assessed and an existing collection for mentally challenged children was bolstered. Data from all three activities was the basis of recommendations to the MVHS regarding its operations and relocation.
