The Convivial Museum 2010

Short Description:

This book offers reflections about key dimensions of conviviality and the practices that nurture and sustain a spirit of conviviality in our museums.


Convivial museums are welcoming public places that connect us with our common heritage and with each other. Convivial museums, at their best, make people feel welcomed, comfortable, open to new experiences, and eager to engage.
