Recommended Museum Education Books

A blog post about books written for the museum education field the author wanted to read in 2017 caught my eye. The list of 9 books includes a one-paragraph description of what each book is about and an explanation of why it’s on the list. Some of the books are more appropriate for museum professionals, but some of them look like they would be of interest to docents/guides as well. For example, the first book on the list, “The Manual of Museum Learning,” offers advice for creating successful learning experiences in museums and other institutions including galleries, zoos, and botanical gardens. You can find the post at:
