In 2003 we conducted a large study with audiences about how they wanted to access material from our Pacific collection, as well as their feedback on exhibition idea using the collection.

The overall objective was to provide the Museum with guidance on how to develop themes and interpretive approaches for a series of exhibitions about the Pacific region. More specifically we wanted to:
* understand audience interest, prior knowledge, attitudes and feelings associated with the Pacific
* identify themes that are of most interest
* identify interpretive approaches

Practical outcomes were to:
* gain an understanding of base contextual information that needs to be provided for visitors
* gain an understanding of interests and issues that the Museum could address in a series of Pacific exhibitions
* gauge interest in specific objects in the Pacific collections
* finalise themes that could be further developed
