What roles can museums serve in a learning community? Why do people go to museums and what do they learn there? The answers to these questions are investigated by combining research and theories from such disparate fields as psychology, neuroscience, education and anthropology, as well as museum studies. The authors explain the nature and process of learning while providing advice on how museums can better create learning environments. Foreword by Michael Spock.
