Comment: NICE COPY. GREAT INTERIOR. CLEAN, CRISP PAGES, with limited highlighting on only about twenty pages. First two pages have some folding near bottom outside corner, and just a hint of curling on some corners (nothing major). Cover is okay, with some light indentations, the odd fold, and a little corner wear. ALL in ALL, a PERFECTLY GOOD COPY that's PERFECTLY UP-TO-THE-JOB REQUIRED! 1505

Product Description

Review

"This is a well-researched, detailed book that presents much food for thought for museum managers and staff."

-Collection Management,vol.30, no 4

"...one of the greatest strengths of this book is the format itself. The text is supported with a range of boxes and other illustrative forms that serve to emphasise and break down key points: indeed a useful addition to a book that attempts to cover such a variety of themes...This book serves as a reader-friendly reference and is a very useful tool for museum and heritage professionals as well as students in relevant fields of study." - Dr Georgios Alexopoulos, University of York

First Sentence
The analysis of audiences and potential audiences for museums is usually defined as 'market research', although this term does not define the full range of participants researched (for example sponsors, corporate users, etc.). Read the first page

Format: Paperback
This is a great book for those interested in museum visitor studies, it has lots of detailed information on visitor audiences as well as one or two useful academic models, lots of info on visitor groups especially schoolgroups and children.

It's not the easiest book to read. It does get very technical. It did get me very buzzed about the idea of completely designing a new museum exhibition from the ground up

'The Engaging Museum'was not the book I expected. It concentrates on museum interpretation rather than display of actual artifacts which is what I am interested in.

This book was very interesting for me. I was enrolled in a course that combined informal learning, educational technology, and lifelong learning. I enjoyed it and have kept it.
