Synopsis: This volume contains the contributions of participants at the Annual Meeting of CECA in Vienna in 2007 where the role of museums in learning was investigated. Museums can become essential partners for the sharing of knowledge. Nevertheless, many still consider museums as academic, boring places or feel excluded from them. Which missions, objectives and activities can help museums reach the non-museum going public? How can museum professionals convey the value of learning as a result of frequenting museums and heritage institutions to decision-makers, politicians, media, and the public at large? These collected papers examine the issues and, through case studies, account for the present research and practice, offering the reader professionals' viewpoints on learning in museums today.
