Utah's Natural History Gets Stunning New Habitat

Utah's Natural History Gets Stunning New Habitat
At the end of last year the Natural History Museum of Utah unveiled its new home, the spectacular $102.5 million Rio Tinto Center in Salt Lake City.

Featuring 34,000 square feet of exhibition space and 10 permanent galleries focussing on the state's ancient ecosystems, biogeography, native peoples and how climate change and population growth are expected to shape the state in the future; the new center makes the museum one of the most prominent natural history destinations in the American West.

We held our annual conference at Merseyside Maritime Museum, Liverpool in December.  As in previous years, the event was hugely popular with a great turnout on the day even despite the dismal weather.

The success of the day was no doubt helped by this year's format which covered the major aspects of managing a museum project, such as design, site construction, and cost management.  The new Museum of Liverpool was used as a case study, and many of the speakers focussed on their involvement in the project; discussing both the successes and challenges.  We were also privileged enough to have presentations from Sharon Granville (Project Director, Museum of Liverpool) and David Fleming (Director, National Museums Liverpool) which in turn sparked some lively and interesting discussion among our delegates.
