Number of Participants / Visitors / Audience: 

Work with the booklet first started with information gathering and researching the historic background of open-air museums. Early in the process we decided to examine the development of open-air museums from their meager beginnings dating back to the 1900's.

We had over 100 years of history to contemplate on, and we needed to do special case studies of the different concepts we found. We also decided to take a closer look at the individuals that helped create the early concepts of what we now know as open-air museums.

As the research continued and we had gathered the information we started to develop the material for the booklet. Focusing on the change in management, how knowledge sharing has changed over the years, how the interaction between management and employees have evolved and the interaction with visitors.

The case studies we did will all be included in the final product.
