National Museum of Health and Medicine Chicago will take advantage of 21st century technology to create a museum experience unlike that of any other museum around the globe.
The NMHM Chicago represents the synergistic convergence of efforts to advance the state-of-the-art in several areas: education, museum design, information science, community outreach, and architecture. Though sited in Chicago’s Loop, this will truly be a museum without walls, projecting its influence across the nation, and providing a rich immersive information experience to users no matter where they are located.
The Museum, with the help of the Buonacorsi Foundation, is currently undertaking efforts to raise sufficient funding to complete the creation of the museum, and to set it on a course leading to financial self sustainability. The initial funding goal is to raise five million dollars within the first year of fundraising efforts. It is estimated that an additional forty million dollars will be required to complete construction of the museum by the end of 2014.
