In times of difficulty, evaluation helps historical institutions determine the needs of visitors and how to maximize opportunities.

This leaflet outlines the importance of evaluation with guidelines for determining what kind of evaluation is needed for a project or area of concern.

Additionally, steps for carrying out the evaluation process and who should implement it are also addressed.
