The business of museums is to explain the past by showing and explaining material culture (objects, things) to visitors. Much effort has been devoted to improving the presentation to the objects themselves, and even more to explaining their importance, their context and their relevance. This book is a critical examination of the techniques used today, their success or failure and the connections between recent work in museums and contemporary studies of text, meaning, signs and symbols.
