Museum learning is a vital component of the lifelong learning process that increasingly shapes the development of twenty-first century individuals. In The Manual of Museum Learning, seasoned museum professionals offer practical advice for creating successful learning experiences in museums and related institutions, including galleries, zoos, and botanic gardens, that can attract and intrigue diverse audiences. Based on an understanding of museum learning as an experience that occurs within a personal, social, and physical context, it explores why, for whom, and how these contexts can be orchestrated in museum galleries with optimal results.

Although much has been written in recent years on what museum visitors actually experience, there is little research-backed guidance available for developing meaningful exhibits and programs for specific educational purposes. Deborah Perry looks at what we know about the experiences of people in museums and other informal learning settings, and then shares a set of tested principles and strategies—known as the Selinda Model—for the design of effective museum exhibits. Along the way, she showcases examples of both effective and ineffective exhibit designs drawn from two decades of work in the field.
