About the Author:

Nina Simon is an independent experience designer with expertise in participatory design, gaming, and social technology. She is the principal of Museum 2.0, a design firm that works with museums, libraries, and cultural institutions worldwide to create dynamic, audience-driven exhibitions and educational programs. In addition to design work, Nina lectures and gives workshops on visitor participation. She is an adjunct professor of social technology in the University of Washington Museology program.

Previously, Nina served as Curator at The Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose, CA, and was the Experience Development Specialist at the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C. Nina lives in Santa Cruz, California. She spends her free time rock climbing and building tree houses.

Review:

"Nina Simon's new book is essential for museum directors interested in experimenting with audience participation on the one hand and cautious about upending the tradition museum model on the other." --Elaine Gurian, international museum consultant and author of Civilizing the Museum

"This book is an extraordinary resource. Nina has assembled the collective wisdom of the field, and has given it her own brilliant spin. Her book will make you want to go right out and start experimenting with participatory projects." --Kathleen McLean, participatory museum designer and author of Planning for People in Museum Exhibitions

"I predict that in the future this book will be a classic work of museology." --Elizabeth Merritt, founding director of the Center for the Future of Museums

"Nina neatly balances practical ideas for immediate implementation with broader strategic thinking, making The Participatory Museum the go-to recipe book for the coming years." --Sebastian Chan, Head of Digital, Social and Emerging Technologies, Powerhouse Museum, Australia

The Participatory Museum has the resonance of a manifesto and the potential to make a transformative impact on museum practice and visitors' experiences in museums in the coming decades. --Eric Siegel, Director and Chief Content Officer, New York Hall of Science
