Identity and the Museum Visitor Experience


John H. Falk, "Identity and the Museum Visitor Experience"
English | ISBN: 1598741624, 1598741632 | 2009 | 302 pages | PDF | 3 MB

Understanding the visitor experience provides essential insights into how museums can affect people�s lives. Personal drives, group identity, decision-making and meaning-making strategies, memory, and leisure preferences, all enter into the visitor experience, which extends far beyond the walls of the institution both in time and space. Drawing upon a career in studying museum visitors, renowned researcher John Falk attempts to create a predictive model of visitor experience, one that can help museum professionals better meet those visitors� needs. He identifies five key types of visitors who attend museums and then defines the internal processes that drive them there over and over again.
