National Public Service Museum & Study Center

National Public Service Museum & Study Center To support the development of a National Public Service Museum and Study Center in the Washington D.C. area
This campaign is led by an American Society for Public Administration (ASPA) Project Team. Our Project Team Leader is Richard Baum, and other ASPA veterans are on the team, including Dr. Ray Oman and Dr. Elsa Rhodes. The Project Team has been developing the Museum concept for several years, and we are now working with Representative Gerry Connally to introduce legislation to establish the museum. We are eager to get ideas and advice for all sources, via Facebook or through the e-mail address below. Baum is a former Congressional Staff Member and current Federal career civil servant. He has graduate degrees in Public Administration (UC-Denver) and National Security Studies (Georgetown).

The National Public Service Museum (NPSM) will be organized into an orientation section and ten separate sectors by subject matter. The orientation section will include discussions of the Constitution and the Founding Fathers vision of how our government would work and presentations on how the Federal civil service developed, changed, and grew over history. The Museum’s sectors will be: Economy & Trade, Education, Energy, Environment, Health, International Affairs, Homeland Security, Housing & Urban Development, Justice, and Transportation.

Mission: The Museum is dedicated to: educating elementary, high school and college students about the role of government in society, to fostering a candid debate about the scale and scope of the public sector and to increase opportunities for young Americans to get directly involved with public policy issues. This mission will be accomplished through an array of exhibits and programming inside the walls of the museum and educational programs outside the walls in collaboration with schools, agencies, and NGOs.
