Objects of Admiration

How to engage visitors in the powerful stories that museum collections can tell.

I have run this course many times as part of Museums Galleries Scotland’s training programme, as well as for individual museums.

It’s a one-day event that:

  • Explains the role of themes in interpretation, and gives participants an opportunity to try working with this idea.
  • Looks at the importance of knowing your audience for interpretation, and how current models of visitor motivation might influence museum practice.
  • Reviews different techniques that can encourage visitors to engage with and understand objects.

Brilliant course leader, really engaging.

Very informative and has made me think more about items in our collection.

An excellent course with easily transferable skills.
