MAP Follow Up Visit Opportunity

Special Opportunity for Previous MAP Participants!

Could this be a good fit for your museum?

  • Has your museum participated in a Museum Assessment Program (MAP) assessment during 2013 to 2020?
  • Would you like to be considered for a low cost follow up visit (virtual or in-person) with your original Peer Reviewer?
  • Is your MAP museum eager to build on the progress you’ve made since your last site visit? Are you ready to take the next steps in implementing recommendations from your final report? Would you like peer guidance and help with strategizing?
  • In partnership with IMLS, AAM is pleased to offer opportunities for a MAP follow up visit in 2021.
  • If your MAP museum has already had a previous follow up visit, are you eligible to apply for another one? Yes!

A previous museum participant had this to say about their follow up experience:

“The overall visit was extremely helpful from a measurement standpoint and as a goal setting opportunity. We have done a lot of work since our reviewer’s first visit and clearly have more to do. I embrace these peer review opportunities and am thankful to AAM for all the resources they provide!”
