Exhibitions for learning book
Exhibitions – public displays of art or technology – have always been vehicles for telling stories, whether implicitly or explicitly. Traditionally, that role has been assigned to museums and galleries. Such institutions have traditionally been most concerned with the collection, conservation, study and display of objects (Miles 1988, 2). However, some museums, especially museums of natural science and technology, have gradually moved their goals from the collection and scholarly curation of valuable objects of the past (and associated storytelling) to provide enhanced learning experiences for the visitors. Exhibitions can have dierent objectives, such as marketing or sale, or to promote individuals, organizations, movements or even countries. Exhibitions can also provide visitors with learning experiences about historical or political topics.
