Type of Evaluation



The Missouri History Museum is providing project management training to its staff and St. Louis historical agency partners.

The Evaluation Center conducted two project management workshops, to enhance participants’ project management capacity.

Project Description


The Missouri History Museum presents Missouri history through their exhibits, education, events, and community engagement. Its mission is to serve as the confluence of historical perspectives and contemporary issues to inspire and engage its audiences. The Museum is comprised of multiple departments which work together to launch exhibits and conduct education and engagement activities.

The Museum also collaborates with other historical agencies throughout the St. Louis region. The majority of these agencies are smaller in size and are led by volunteer staff. Museum staff and volunteers have varying levels of project management experience and use a variety of tools and systems to manage projects.
