Museums, Adults and the Humanities: A Guide for Educational Programming

Preface by Adrienne Horn
American Association of Museums

This book is the result of four separate AAM seminars including: Relating the Humanities to the Museum; Adults as Learners; Lifelong Learning and the Museum; and Developing Humanities Programs for Adults. The publication captures and preserves the substance of the oral programs by stimulating the broader interest of museum professionals in the humanities as a way to reach a larger segment of the adult public. Providing the structure for the book, the seminars presented academic humanists points-of-view, looking at the audience of adult visitors for whom these programs are designed, applying adult learning concepts, and case studies.
