Museum and exhibit development is an exciting, dynamic process that benefits from a multidisciplinary team approach.

Since 1985 Kauffman Museum has shared our experience and creativity with other organizations. Our collaboration philosophy begins with close interaction with those who will use and maintain the project, includes a preference for cost-effective, low-tech solutions, seeks to integrate our entrepreneurial spirit and professional networks with yours, and concludes with a commitment to producing exhibitions that create excitement and inspiration.
