Review

The pages of the manual bulge with knowledge and case studies from 45 very experienced museum professionals from the USA, Canada, and Britain...It takes you step by step through all areas of exhibition development, from the germ of an idea to what you could sell in the shop....An alternative could be 'Everything you ever wanted to know about exhibition development but were too frightened to ask'. (Vicki Northey Museum National)

This book provides generously abundant information on many crucial fields of museum practice, aspiring to become a basic usable code of 'grammar and syntax' for the museum exhibition field. From this point of view, it is a major contribution and all those who are involved in museum exhibition practical matters will find a great deal of help in it. (Eurydice Retsila
Visitor Studies Today!)

This is a valuable book on a broad subject, with many useful insights into the 'bigger picture' of museum exhibitions. It is good to see a section dedicated to interpretive planning...if you want a single textbook about museum exhibitions, this is it. (
Interpret Scotland)
