Electronics Museum employees review operations, procedures

April 23, 1996

Employees at the Historical Electronics Museum in Linthicum began yesterday a two-month review of the way they operate, financed by a $2,000 federal grant.

The review is the first step on the road to becoming approved by the American Association of Museums (AAM), a Washington-based organization that represents and rates museums. It will be followed by a two-day, on-site consultation from another museum professional, said Jeffrey P. Buchheit, director of the museum at 1745 W. Nursery Road.

The $2,000 Museum Assessment Program grant comes from the Institute of Museum Services. It is administered by the AAM, which has more than 13,700 members.

The review will compare the museum's policies and procedures with national museums.

Mr. Buchheit said the museum is designing new interactive exhibits to explain how household items, such as microwave ovens, radios and televisions work.

It is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays.
