Education departments in museums of all kinds serve millions
of students and adult learners every year, using the objects
and other resources of the museum to teach and inspire. The
rapidly growing field of museum education offers hands-on,
experiential learning, often working closely with local school
boards to supplement and enhance public school curricula.
With Teaching the Museum, 20 contributors from across the
exciting field of museum education offer innovative insights,
anecdotes, and advice for best practices on how to realize
the museum's full potential as an educational institution.
From the balance between education and entertainment; to
meeting the needs of both one's audience and the collection;
to understanding connections between how we learn and
how exhibits and programming are designed; this book will
appeal to museum educators, students, and teachers seeking
to learn more about the field.
Leah M. Melber is senior director of the Hurvis Center for
Learning Innovation and Collaboration at the Lincoln Park
