Abstract

The London Project Center Postal Museum team’s mission was to evaluate interactive exhibits at the Postal Museum and Mail Rail and furnish improving strategies to the Museum. The team achieved this goal through four primary objectives: identifying current and best practices at similar museums, soliciting Postal Museum staff’s knowledge of the exhibits, assessing visitor experiences with the interactive exhibits, and conducting in-depth evaluations of selected exhibits. For project deliverables, the team compiled the ratings of each exhibit in four main categories: attraction, placement, engagement, and learning. On top of that, the team presented a set of long and short-term recommendations for existing exhibits, new interactive ideas, and the museum as a whole.
