The Museum of the Coastal Bend is planning for the future with you in mind.

Recently the MCB was chosen to participate in the Museum Assessment Program administered by the American Alliance of Museums.

Participation was funded through the Institute of Museum and Library Services with the intent of the Museum of Assessment Program specifically helping museums such as our Museum of the Coastal Bend plan for the future.

Our MCB has chosen to do a 'Community and Audience Engagement Assessment' in order to improve how the museum serves us, the Coastal Bend Region. The goal is to establish ways to make exhibits more inclusive and accommodating to individuals with special needs.

Sue Prudhomme, VC Executive Director of Cultural Affairs offers, "We’d like to better understand the needs of our audience,” said Sue Prudhomme, VC executive director of cultural affairs. “The results of the assessment will focus on the museum’s community engagement planning in the coming years."

Laura Loft, president of the American Alliance of Museums offers that "Studies have shown American museums to be among the most trusted and valued institutions. The MAP program is designed to make them even better."
