Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
The general public seemed to really enjoy being able to ask questions to experts and it was evident that they walked away knowing a lot more. The staff of the museum learned a whole lot, and they can know better answer guests questions. This ended up being a kick off event and guests could them find other BAW events the week of BAW
Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:
Nothing comes to mind, I would probably want to be set up as soon as the museum opens and find a few more groups to partner with.
