Lifelong learning in museums: a critical appraisal
Candlin, Fiona and O'Brien, Margaret (2001) Lifelong learning in museums: a critical appraisal. In: Jones, David J. and Normie, Gerald (eds.) 2001 - A Spatial Odyssey. Nottingham: Continuing Education Press, pp. 176-186. ISBN 185041095X.
Museums are generally considered storehouses of treasure but recent government policy focuses on issues of social inclusion, life skills and employment. We critically examine current policy, comparing it to earlier educational approaches in museums and suggest that its implementation forms both a major institutional challenge and an opportunity for national museums.
