The New Museology in Museum Practice in China: A Case Study in Hubei Provincial Museum
MetadataShow full item record
As one of the major lifelong learning possibilities outside the education system, museums have always been an important venue to the public. Throughout their long history, there has been a major shift in museology from being a collections-centered museum to a visitor-centered museum in recent years. As China develops economically, museums have become greater in number, size, and scope. However, Chinese museums might neglect the importance of the visitor experience. With a framework of new museology and models a new participatory museum, this research project attempts to understand the visitor-centered practice in China through document analysis and a case study of the Hubei Provincial Museum in Hubei, China. This study intends to understand the implementation of theory into practices and offer useful recommendations to the museum professionals in China.
