Murphy, Michael P. A. – Journal of Museum Education, 2018
The introduction of online elements to museums and cultural sites has opened up new ways for visitors to engage with the past, with nature, with culture, and all other treasures of the museum.

Katrikh, Mark – Journal of Museum Education, 2018
Visitors come to museums for many reasons, including to learn something new about our world, not specifically to have an emotional response. Visitors unprepared for personal experiences can manifest their confusion in a multitude of ways. Anticipating such reactions, museums must engage in dialogue, to help visitors process emotions and ultimately…

Rauch, Noah – Journal of Museum Education, 2018
The 9/11 Memorial Museum's docent program offers visitors artifact-based entry-points into a difficult, emotional history. The program's launch raised a host of questions, many centered on how to balance and convey strongly held, often traumatic, and sometimes conflicting experiences with a newly constructed institutional narrative. This article…

Kelton, Molly L.; Saraniero, Patti – Journal of Museum Education, 2018
Museum partnerships can involve significant tensions, especially when these collaborations reach across institutions to blend disciplines such as art and mathematics. Rather than simply being obstacles to overcome, we suggest that tensions arising in multi-institutional, cross-disciplinary collaborations can be highly generative for collaborators,…

Martinko, Megan; Luke, Jessica – Journal of Museum Education, 2018
To combat the spread of fake news, researchers and academics point to the importance of historical thinking. While generally researched in terms of formal education, historical thinking is also being considered in history museums. This research study examined the ways in which children demonstrate historical thinking in history museums' hands-on…

Callihan, Elisabeth; Feldman, Kaywin – Journal of Museum Education, 2018
Gender inequity has affected museums for as long as these institutions have existed. Increased representation of women in the workplace over the past 50 years has not brought about significant changes. In the museum sector, despite the fact that white women now dominate many areas of the museum like education departments, women of color are not…

Lussenhop, Alexander – Journal of Museum Education, 2018
Many museums collect data about their staff, volunteers, and/or visitors in some capacity, and questions about sex and gender are ubiquitous on their forms and surveys. However, museums can do more to consider the inclusivity of their sex and gender questions by going beyond the male/female binary. Museums should consider the needs of transgender…

trivedi, nikhil; Wittman, Aletheia – Journal of Museum Education, 2018
Despite the growing number of women in museums, the undervaluing of educational work traditionally associated with women, and labor largely done by women today, persists. This begs the question: in what "other" ways are women and femmes working in museums undermined despite their growing presence as workers and the emerging centrality of…
