Travelling Exhibits

Are you a museum or organization that would like to have your exhibit on display at the WDM?

The WDM develops permanent, temporary and travelling exhibits for all four WDM locations. Additionally, the WDM borrows temporary exhibits from other museums and organizations.

Exhibit topics are developed in accordance with goals outlined in the Museum’s Strategic Plan and related documents. The WDM maintains a Curatorial Committee responsible for the evaluation and selection of all exhibit proposals. WDM staff, other museums and members of the public may bring forward ideas for exhibits to the Curatorial Committee.
