Drinking About Museums: Boston – April recap and May date!

Greetings, friends and collaegues!

Another fabulous Drinking About Museums: Boston event happened last night. A group of about sixteen convened at the Museum of Fine Arts, where the marvelous Ms Jenna Fleming put together a great and informative presentation on the evaluation of the interactives in their  Behind the Scenes galleries in the Art of the Americas Wing.  Many thanks to Jenna and Lynn and all the MFA crew!

Everybody loves visitor research results!

Afterwards, we adjourned to Church where, more folks joined us, shop was talked and plans hatched! Thanks to all of you who ventured out on a blustery night.

While we were there, plans were laid for the next few meetups.  Next month, we will be meeting at the Museum of Science, Boston, where Beth Amtmann and crew will demo some of the prototypes under construction for the Museum’s Upcoming Hall of Human Life exhibition.  Afterwards, we will adjourn across the street to Lingo for refreshments.
