Learning from Museums: Visitor Experiences and the Making of Meaning by John H. Falk


Softcover in Good (G) condition. Light wear. Cover has a small rip on back. Pages clean and straight. 

Why do people go to museums and what do they learn there? What roles can museums serve in a learning community? How can museums facilitate more effective learning experiences? John H. Falk and Lynn D. Dierking investigate these questions in Learning from Museums. Synthesizing theories and research from a wide range of disciplines, including psychology, education, anthropology, neuroscience and museum research, Falk and Dierking explain the nature and process of learning as it occurs within the museum context and provides advice on how museums can create better learning environments.
