Administration

The administrative tasks necessary to operate a museum or historical site can seem daunting. From developing big picture ideas to the day-to-day operations, administration involves keeping a finger in every pot.

Administration can be broken down into five key areas: mission statements and strategic planning, governance, getting and managing money, personnel and insurance. Each section provides a brief overview of the subject and provides links to resources that will help your small museum or historic site implement its own administrative plan.
