Dynamic Museum Place: Exploring the Multi-Dimensional Museum Environment
Leach, Denise Blair
Journal of Museum Education, v32 n3 p197-207 Fall 2007
Place is an important factor in museum education, yet describing what the museum is as place is often difficult. This article introduces the idea that museums consist of multiple physical and virtual place "domains" where interactions between people and objects occur: the origin domain, creation domain, display domain, and the experiencer-object domain. In this dynamic world of constantly evolving place, museum educators have the opportunity to introduce learners to richer experiences in museum place by understanding and addressing spatial realities. (Contains 17 notes and 2 figures.)
