Abstract

The Postal Museum asked the authors of this report to evaluate a new outreach program, called Museum in a Box. To determine its effectiveness as an educational tool outside the museum, the team determined design criteria, developed a functional prototype, and observed its use in a classroom. The team collated key takeaways from interviews, surveys, and observations to produce actionable recommendations. The team ultimately advised The Postal Museum to pursue further development of content for deployment on the Museum in a Box platform.
