9780759113398: Interpretation: Education, Programs, and Exhibits (Small Museum Toolkit)

Programs, tours and exhibits are the meat-and-potatoes of what most museums do to meet their missions to educate the public. Interpretation helps make small museums compelling so that the public understands that they are more than a repository of dusty objects. This book considers researching and designing exhibits and best practices for sharing the stories with your audiences. It explores how to orient your organization to be effective interpreters of what you collect, including how to tell engaging stories and how to address difficult issues you may have ignored in the past, like slavery, prejudice and privilege. For the non-historian, it also offers a step-by-step primer on good historical research.

Stacy Klingler is the assistant director of Local History Services at the Indiana Historical Society.

Review:

Book Five of the Small Museum Toolkit is an invaluable resource for those who want to learn the ins and outs of solid interpretation. Contributors, whose insights come from years of experience on the front line, identify the most important things to keep in mind when planning and coordinating programs and exhibits. This is a book that I will share with paid and volunteer staff alike. (Alexandra Rasic, Public Programs Manager, Homestead Museum)
