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.

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.

Publications: The Museum Staff will publish a newsletter, a magazine incorporating essays and photos by students, and periodically issue press releases reporting on the results of surveys of young visitors to the museum on key public policy questions.

Museum Membership: A variety of initiatives will be launched to build a strong grass-roots cadre of active Members, including teachers, parents, and current and former public servants. Directly related to this effort will be an initiative to build a comprehensive set of first person accounts of public service programs and projects. This information will be used in exhibits and maintained as a Public Service Archive available to researchers and students of all kinds. Museum Members will also be asked to serve as volunteer museum guides, to provide lectures within their areas of expertise, and invited to attend special events.

Museum Theater: A 20-minute orientation film which explains the reasons for the creation of the Museum and providing an overview of its exhibits will run continually in the theater. The theater will also be available for lectures, panel discussions, presentations by elected and appointed government officials, special events, and documentary film presentations.

Bookstore/Café: A comprehensive gift shop/book store, tailored to the material presented in the museum will be established. Adequate space will be provided to accommodate regular author lectures/signings. A restaurant, which can provide food to the public, as well as additional space for group events, will be built into the museum. Class room space to support student visits will also be built into this section of the museum so that large groups have a place to gather and prepare for their visits.

Careers: Opportunities for interested individuals to get more information about applying for jobs related to public service, both governmental and non-governmental, will be integrated into each sector of the museum as part of the get involved exhibit section referenced above. Computer kiosks describing where job openings exist by sector will enable interested museum visitors to print out or have additional employment information directly e-mailed to them.
