Checklist for New Museum Building Projects


This is a resource developed by Museums Galleries Scotland covers everything from the building, the needs of the collection and management and costs.

The responsibility for the success of a museum building project falls to you, the museum organisation. It is vital that staff and trustees have researched what is required, in order to be able to inform and advise others working on the project, such as architects, engineers and consultants. It is a truism to say that ‘You get what you ask for’, so make sure that you are asking for what you want! Always brief any contractor: don’t expect them to do it for themselves.
