2: The Mini Time Machine | is located in Tucson, AZ. "The mission of The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures is to provide in a state-of-the-art building, a cultural and educational atmosphere for the preservation and display of antique and contemporary miniatures. The artistic, historic, architectural and creative aspects of miniatures will be shared in an entertaining and interactive way with community members of all ages." ("The Mini Time", 2012).

4: Museum Services Manager and Front Desk Staff Right inside the entry way, the front desk welcomes guests. Here, the employees that guests will have the most contact with are the Front-Desk Staff who are overseen by the Museum Services Manager (Schlatter, 2008).
5: Also in the entry way, is a kiosk with advertisements for "Upcoming Events." Mini Time Machine does not have an in-house editor ("Contact Us", 2013), but they do have a Director of Marketing and Communications, who would be in charge of organizing and putting together all the fliers (Schlatter, 2008) | Director of Marketing and Communications
6: Curator | This display was within the first circular room that leads to the exhibits of the museum. The research was mostly conducted by the curator of the museum (Glaser and Zenetou, 1996; Schlatter, 2008)
8: Technician and Curator
9: There were a few of these screens scattered throughout all of the exhibits. Each one had a touch-screen pad that allowed you to start the video. This particular video was about the history of miniatures. Technicians would be needed to put this together, since none are listed outside specialist might have been brought in. The curator also would have assisted in the research (Glaser and Zenetou, 1996; Schlatter, 2008).
11: Exhibit Designer, Curator, and Education This house was near the end of the route I took. It is a good example of all the displays. An exhibit designer, curator, and the education department would have worked together to create the exhibits. Even though an exhibit designer is not listed in the museum's staff, this duty might be in someone's job description (just not title) or one was consulted when setting up the exhibits. The curator would, again, be in charge of research. The educator would have input on how things are presented for their target audience. (Glaser and Zenetou, 1996; Schlatter, 2008).
12: Security | Throughout the museum, this security guard was wandering around. In one area, he kept children from climbing on a fake tree. This guard is overseen by the Security Chief (Schlatter, 2008; "The Mini Time", 2012).
14: Museum Services Manager | Near the exit of the exhibit area, there was a Private Party Room that could be rented out. At the Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures, the Museum Services Manager is the one in charge of booking special events ("Event Packages", 2013).
15: -- | General Business Manager | At the same place as the entry way is a small section as the gift shop. They had a wide variety of things, mostly toys for younger children. The nicer things were small replicas, which this picture is | an image of a tag for one. The store would be run by the Museum Shop/Retail Manager, who might be under the title "General Business Manager" at the Mini Time Machine ("Contact Us", 2013; Schlatter, 2008; Glaser and Zenetou, 1996).
