Museum Mind creates engaging exhibition concepts for museums and visitor centers, using a multi-disciplinary approach. We make our mark by combining museology and design expertise. Content and space, as well as visitors’ needs and expectations, are considered key elements in the
development of provoking exhibition narratives, designs and media. Moreover, our passion is to make people museum minded!
Museum Mind has extensive experience in museum development processes, working with both Dutch and international partners.
Museum Mind is founded by exhibition maker Paul Ariese. He is a graduate of the renowned University of Leicester School of Museum Studies (MA with distinction), and was also trained as architectural and graphic designer. Since 1997, Ariese was involved in hundreds of projects for museums all over the Netherlands, next to museum projects and capacity building programs in the Middle East, Kenya, Tanzania and Indonesia.
Previously, Ariese worked as designer at Architectenbureau Jowa, and as exhibition maker at the Tropenmuseum and Perspekt Studio’s. He is board member of Salon
de Museologie and advisor of the Center for International Heritage Activities (CIE), Leiden. As of February 2015, Ariese is appointed lecturer Exhibition Development at Reinwardt Academy, Amsterdam. Please have a look at his curriculum vitae to learn more.
Over the years, Museum Mind has developed an extensive network in the museum field.
