Overview

Global climate conditions demand a response by institutions that are here for the long haul, as museums collect, preserve, and interpret in perpetuity. Environmentally friendly practices are crucial to the mission of our museums-as learning institutions, museums are uniquely suited to modeling green behavior. In The Green Museum, authors Sarah S. Brophy and Elizabeth Wylie, acclaimed across the country for bringing green to the museum, offer a complete handbook to guide museum staff in incorporating green design into new construction and day-to-day operations. Sustainable practices can save on operating costs and even make museums attractive to new fundraising sources, as Brophy and Wylie show in case studies of museums that have already taken steps to become green. In this easy-to-read book, they demystify the process of going green, including detailed explanations of, for example, the basics of recycling, options for environmentally friendly exhibit design, and how to conduct energy audits. The Green Museum is full of practical information for museums of any size and a vital resource for every museum that wants to remain relevant in an increasingly green world.

An essential read, not only for sustainability coordinators or facility managers, but for environmental educators, interpreters, designers and curators.
