The Behavior of the Museum Visitor.
Robinson, Edward Stevens; And Others
Two years of observation of the behavior of visitors in several museums led to the knowledge of the degree of simplicity that is desirable in museum surroundings and of the need for pamphlets that are better prepared than the usual guide books and catalogs. It also led to the advice that museum directors become experimental psychologists, and that they undertake behavior inventories. A report on the Pennsylvania Museum is appended. (MF)
