About this book

The science museum of Minnesota moved its complete collection to a newly build museum in 1999.

From the foreword:

"This manual is a "how we did it" more than a step-by-step guide to moving collections. It begins with an overview of the planning process and proceeds through the scheduling, staffing, packing, moving, and unpacking of our collections. Each section describes through text, figures, photographs, and a little levity the process we used, with analyses of what we thought went wrong and thoughts on how we would do it differently now. We hope this manual will help you in planning and executing the move of your own institution-or at least to know the pitfalls."
