Abstract

The American Farm School (AFS) in Thessaloniki, Greece, established in 1904 as a collaborative Greek-American establishment, has a long history of introducing novel agricultural technologies to Greece, as well as serving as a space of refuge and learning. The AFS is considering developing an open-air museum on its campus to publicize its long history and continued innovations. We collected and analyzed data from observations, archival data on existing school tour programs, and interviews with staff, administration, and anticipated museum visitors. We presented our assessments at an interactive presentation overviewing our evaluation of guiding principles, museum content, and participated target audience, in addition to developing a prototype layout and exhibit design to guide future work.
