For our fall Quick Take Poll, we asked "Do you think your museum does a good job with wayfinding?"

30% of respondents answered yes, 63% said not, and 7% answered "What is wayfinding?"

Wayfinding refers to information systems that guide people through a physical environment and enhance their understanding and experience of the space.


 Other responses included:

  • "Wayfinders"  volunteers assigned to key pinch points
  • Kiosks and maps on the grounds
  • Gallery assistant only for traveling exhibits, pdf of map on website that can be downloaded
  • We are a historic site and have far too many signs in the landscape, directional, prohibitive, informational.
  • Outdoor signs
  • Building signs
