In hopes of attracting more families and expanding its interactive exhibits, Worcester Historical Museum (WHM) has proposed to develop a Worcester history-themed, portable miniature golf course that will be used by the museum during special events and functions. The goal of our project was to establish the learning outcomes of the course, determine the most popular and appropriate themes for each hole, and create bid-ready designs for the course. We determined criteria and developed designs for our project through a series of focus groups, interviews, surveys, and field research with project stakeholders. We provided the museum with a recommended design, any necessary graphics, and description of each of the nine holes.
