Functional Phase (N)

The time period when the exhibition is on display is often referred to as the functional phase. In this phase, educational programmes are implemented and the exhibition is typically also presented to the public through pre-scheduled guided tours.

It also includes personnel administration and maintenance work, and ends with the dismantling of the exhibition and the balancing of accounts.

In this phase, summative evaluation is used to determine if the exhibition met its goals. Such evaluation is often relatively easy to conduct, but may lead to expensive re-design of entire exhibits.
