What we do
Content Development & Design
Showing exhibitions on a regular basis is an important revenue stream for museums and a growing area for commercial exhibition venues. A vibrant changing program of new exhibitions is almost always needed by any type of venue in order to capture the public’s imagination and therefore drive attendance, and if successfully planned and executed, to stimulate valuable repeat business. In addition to the revenue driven from exhibitions themselves, a strong retail offering and other paying opportunities for guests can raise overall income and net returns.
We believe successful exhibitions share common themes and provide a framework for which to make sure the visitor experience is most impactful. The Museum Practice's guide, “Keys to Successful Exhibits” define the criteria we use to evaluate exhibitions.
Carefully handpicked and effectively managed creative teams produce awe-inspiring museum projects. We work closely with the world’s best creatives that reflect the objectives and constraints of the client and their project. Every project is unique and the process should be also.
Developing new ways to deliver creative content and great design are essential for a one-of-a-kind exhibition. We excel in the selection and management of architects, engineers, exhibit, graphic and lighting designers, media producers and all other related creative professionals.

Building on past accomplishments and never ceasing to research the field, The Museum Practice is exceptionally resourceful in coordinating teams, and holds contract commissions for all aspects of developing and executing successful exhibitions.
The Museum Practice has extensive experience in placing exhibitions with museums and other exhibition venues. Whether it's an art, history or science exhibition we have the relationships and experience to help place your exhibition. Recent projects include the award-winning Meet Vincent van Gogh exhibition. As an independent organization we have been on both the exhibition owner and venue sides, and understand each parties unique needs.
