Annotation: This brochure describes the National AIDS Exhibit Consortium (NAEC), a partnership of eight public science museums working together with the American Medical Association and the Centers for Disease Control to research, develop, and display HIV/AIDS education exhibits in their own institutions and in science museums around the country. The participating museums are: Museum of Science, Boston, Massachusetts, California Museum of Science and Industry, Los Angeles, California; Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago, Illinois; Exploratorium, San Francisco, California; Franklin Institute, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; National Museum of Health and Medicine, Washington, DC; and New York Hall of Science, New York, New York. Current activities of the NAEC include the development of a traveling exhibit which will contain three interactive computer programs, HIV testing demonstrations, educational materials for students and teachers, host museum staff training, and exhibit brochures. Future activities include the professional evaluation of the exhibits and the implementation of an outreach program to expand the audience for museum-based exhibits.
