Lyne Pivin has been at the Canada Science and Technology Museum in Ottawa Canada since 2001. Lyne is currently Director of Visitor Experience, a position she has held since 2014. In her position, she is responsible for all aspects – from development to delivery -- of formal and informal learning in the museum. These include school programs, summer camps, interpretation in the galleries, demonstrations and outreach projects in various communities.
Most recently, Lyne was instrumental in the reopening of the museum, a $100 million project that took 3 years to complete. The closure of the museum was a unique opportunity to completely revise all the programs from scratch to address the content of the 11 new galleries with themes ranging from the history to the technology to challenges of the future.
Finally Lyne had the privilege of delivering in the Palace Museum a 5-day workshop entitled "The art of interpretation" for Chinese museum guides. This workshop was offered three times. This experience allowed her to share her passion for delivering excellent visitor experiences.
