One of the fun things I get to do as Program Manager at AASLH is to visit our member museums. Last summer, I was in Atlanta for our Project Management for History Professionals workshop and got to drop in on Tiffany Meng at the Delta Flight Museum.
What a great museum! They have awesome artifacts highlighting the history of Delta Airlines. One of my favorite exhibits was the Delta family tree which showed all of the mergers and acquisitions in Delta’s history. It was a great way to show the company growth over its history. They have a version online as well.
What is a great corporate museum you visited lately? How do you exhibit the web of your mergers and acquisitions? Share your ideas with us!
