Now that all of your important decisions have been made, it is time for you, as the chosen Director of the new city museum, to write and present your Final Museum Proposal to your City Officials.

- Why did you decide on the this particular focus for the city museum?
- Why do you think that the permanent exhibit you have chosen will appeal to the cityâ€™s diverse citizens as well as to foreign visitors?

All of these questions should be answered in your Final Museum Proposal.
