Nice art, but where can I sit?
If your visitors often ask themselves this question - or if you, as a museum visitor, find yourself asking this question - then you belong at the WMA Annual Meeting session, "Increasing Visitorship by Making Visitors Comfortable," on Tuesday, October 19 at 11 AM.
You'll see and hear how four museums - the Museum of Photographic Arts, Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI), Skirball Cultural Center, and the Arizona State Museum - used a devastatingly simple tool to assess visitor comfort - without surveying visitors.
Learn how you, too, can get a quick and accurate read on how visitors of all ages and abilities interact with seating, labels, restrooms, entrance and exit spaces - the whole museum - with minimal time and expense. There will be lots of time for questions and discussion, and no Death by Power Point, I promise.
Remember, comfortable visitors = happy visitors = more visitors!
See you at the session. There will be plenty of seating.
