The Museum of Science, Boston will establish measures and methods for ongoing assessment related to its newly adopted mission statement: to inspire a lifelong love of science in everyone. The museum will work with expert advisors to refine impact measures, identify key evaluation methods, and discuss participant sampling. Community advisors will help the museum employ culturally responsive evaluation practices and bring in local voices. Pilot testing and an analysis of baseline data will provide the insight necessary for future planning, sustained impact measurement, and growth. By better articulating its mission achievement through data, the museum will improve the visitor experience, attract new visitors, and expand its reach, while increasing access to and enjoyment of science in its community and beyond.
