“The Museum Lab” is a brand new innovative project that invites visitors to shape Vesterheim’s future by testing new exhibits, tours, classes, and programs in their early stages of development.
“We’re interested in how we can best serve you, our visitors,” said Vesterheim Gifts Officer, Kirsten Heine. “The Museum Lab showcases ideas for everything from Vesterheim displays to restaurant possibilities, and it gives fun interactive ways for all ages to test them out and let us know what you think,” she explained.

Heine said that “The Museum Lab” will be constantly updated and changed over the year, so it could be different each visit.

“Bring your kids to the Opening Reception after school and they will be a part of Vesterheim’s future for our community,” Heine said.
