Museum Exhibition is the only textbook of its kind to consider exhibition development using both theory and practice in an integrated approach. This comprehensive study covers care of exhibits, writing accompanying text, using new technology, exhibition evaluation, administration and content for a wide range of collections. It provides a complete outline for all those concerned with providing displays in museums and other cultural heritage contexts.


'This is an ambitious undertaking for a single volume, but it does meet a need for a good overview of all of the issues affecting the creation of exhibitions and displays.' - Tak Tent, Scottish Museums Council
