I cannot say for the natural history museum world, but in the science/ 
technology museum world, we have groups of museums cooperating to build 
travelling exhibits that are then shared with each participating museum before 
the constructing museum owns said exhibit. It's been a great way for us to 
share different ideas and styles with other museums, and it gives us greater 
flexibility in topics we can use.
