Inception, Development, Operation - Site-Specific Museums, Dr Gillian O'Brien (Publication)

Posted: Monday, 04 June 2018

In early 2018, Liverpool John Moores University sponsored a workshop held at Nano Nagle Place, Cork on 12 March 2018 - led by Dr Gillian O'Brien - to discuss best practice in relation to the inception, development and operation of site-specific museums and heritage centres. The purpose of this workshop was to identify the key challenges faced by those developing and operating site-specific museums and heritage sites.

Participants explored a range of issues relating to site-specific museums and heritage sites and also issues that are applicable to all heritage and museum developments (particularly focussing on the very early stages).

This report incorporates both the workshop discussions and the insights of other heritage professionals and offers a number of recommendations and suggestions for anyone involved in the inception, development and operation of site-specific museums and heritage centres.
