In an age when museum and cultural destinations are striving to adapt to changing audiences, PGAV Destinations is helping leaders craft strategic, creative, and innovative experiences that engage the heart and inspire the mind. Our strategies help leaders fulfill their mission of meaningfully shaping guests’ understanding of the world – and their role within it.

We’re passionate about the field:

where it’s been, where it’s headed, and where visionary leaders could take it next. As tools for learning and communication change – and guest behaviors change with them – PGAV Destinations is dedicated to exploring new ways to educate, empower, capture the imagination, and inspire advocacy among diverse visitor groups.

No two cultural destinations are alike.

We like that challenge. PGAV Destinations has designed experiences for people of all ages across topics as diverse as history, nature, culture, science, technology, social science, art, and humanities. We relish the opportunity to dig deeper, discover new perspectives, and apply ideas from other disciplines in never-before-seen ways. We blend the passion of a specialized firm with a vision and skill set as broad as the field itself.

It’s not about us.

The guest is our guide. Using deep insights into consumer attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors, we think through the entire destination experience, from the parking lot, to the exhibits, to the feel of the floor. We believe in the power of destinations to transform lives and shape communities, so there are no egos allowed at our drawing board – just curiosity, creativity, and a commitment to ensuring guests have an experience they can’t wait to share with others.

We’re by your side from start to finish.

We’re master planners, researchers, art directors, designers, architects, and project managers, and we’re comfortable thinking and working at any scale. Whether you need designs for an entire museum, a complete campus, or a stunning, single exhibition, we’ll lead the way.

Create an unforgettable experience with us.
