Relevance and Museum Displays
“Most important, the link between the museum and the visitor’s life needs to be
made clear.” (Csikszentmihalyi and Hermanson, 1995)
“In order to make meaning of our experience, we need to be able to connect it with what we already know.” (Hein, 1999)
“…we must find ways to reach visitors, building bridges to their past experiences
and knowledge.” (Jeffrey, 1998)
Do real time displays offer more opportunities for connections between visitors and the display? Do they increase relevance for visitors?
