Brooklyn Children's Museum Wayfinding Study

Although the Brooklyn Children's Museum, constructed in the early 1970's, received awards for its innovative design, in some ways, the design was found to be problematic. When new renovations of the space were initiated, PPS was asked to address the museum's visibility problems and its seemingly confusing interior.

PPS conducted extensive on-site analysis to help improve wayfinding both to and through the museum, using surveys, systematic observations and tracking of actual visitor use. Recommendations included design (architectural) changes, management (staff and/or programmatic) improvements, as well as a preliminary plan of proposed interior as well as some exterior improvements.
