Conclusions l.jpg

Due to the fact that this campaign has not been implemented we are unable to draw conclusions about the effectiveness of our efforts.

We believe that this campaign will be a hit given that it has been a success when displayed at other museums, including the Presidio in San Francisco, CA.
