Museums as learning environments
MetadataShow full item record
Museums are becoming increasingly more interactive, educational, and community-centered. In light of these changes, my design studies have focused on exhibition design for art museums, which, due to the nature of their collections, have been slower in adopting interactive strategies. This report summarizes the history of museums and illustrates how educational theories can be applied to exhibit design. Moreover, I present my design investigations, which resulted in a methodology for critiquing and reinventing museum displays of art.
