The Effect of Visitors' Agendas on Museum Learning.
Falk, John H.; Moussouri, Theano; Coulson, Douglas
Curator, v41 n2 p106-20 Jun 1998
This study directly tests the effects of different museum-visit agendas on visitor learning. Two tools were used, a tool for measuring visitor motivations and Personal Meaning Mapping (PMM), a constructivist approach that measures visitor learning. Individuals who strongly desired both an educational and an entertaining experience learned more than those focusing on education or entertainment alone. Contains 23 references. (Author/PVD)
