The Multisensory Museum - Nina Levent & Alvaro Pascual-Leone

Combining recent neurological findings, curatorial innovations and psychological insights the essays collected here focus on the potential within the museum experience to effectively provide richly multisensory information. Paying particular note of the experience of the visually or mobility impaired the book examines many common shortcomings in our contemporary use of museum spaces and contrasts these with historical accounts in which, for example, visitors were emphatically encouraged to touch and handle exhibits.  While there is no doubt the museum experience is an actively developing realm, the contributions here greatly amplify the divide between the familiar territory we occupy in most institutions and the huge possibilities opened up by a more sesorially generous approach to the extraordinary resources housed within our museums.
