The exhibition design and development process is a difficult one, but the journey is both an enriching and rewarding experience. The key to the successful development of any exhibition is a well-organized, institutionally supported process. On March 10, 2006, Chicago's Field Museum opened the doors to its permanent exhibition Evolving Planet. Invisible to the vast majority of visitors that explored Evolving Planet and all exhibitions across the globe are the endless decisions, disagreements, and details that lead to the exhibition's creation. Exhibition development like the process of science is subjective by nature, and this common thread connects all exhibitions and their displays. And while it is absolutely critical to have correct content and ground-breaking research presented within an exhibition's walls indeed, it is a museum's responsibility to do so it must also be accepted that the same topic developed independently by two or more institutions would likely produce very different exhibitions.
