The Museum of History & Industry will conduct formative evaluation and community research to guide the redesign of its core exhibit, “True Northwest,” which traces the history of Seattle. The museum will engage external consultants to facilitate the project, which will begin with a marketing study to understand public perceptions of the museum and motivations for visiting. The museum will also engage the community in focus groups to explore physical access issues. Experts in developmental and physical disabilities and racial equity professionals trained in issues of representation will review the current exhibits. The findings will guide the creation of a scope of work and inform the future development of the new core exhibit experience.
