About this book

Describing the different types of corporate museum-like facilities located in the United States, and around the world, this guide provides information for anyone planning, starting up, or operating a museum, gallery, or visitor center. This practical text analyzes the various types of corporate museum-like facilities and describes their development; points to key factors to consider in planning and establishing museums, galleries and visitor centers; and discusses their operation and reasons for their success or failure.

?Danilov is to be congratulated for having collected so much information on what is a growing though still small and rarely written about sector of the museum world. The companion volumes make a useful addition to museums' and corporations' libraries.?-Curator
