How many blogs do you read regularly?
Much of today’s most interesting, innovative and passionate writing about museums and galleries is hidden away in hundreds of carefully-crafted museum blogs. And all too little of this content enters into mainstream museum discourse.
Over 75 blogs: transforming the museum experience
The Museum Blog Book brings together a collection which reflects fresh thinking and practice in and about museums. Whether the authors are from world-class institutions like MoMA, the Smithsonian, the British Museum, or the V&A - or are independent professionals or volunteers - they all share practical experience aimed at improving (and often transforming) the museum experience.
In five sections, The Museum Blog Book explores every key area of museum operation: from managing and collecting, to learning, interpreting and visiting. The content is both rich and concise. And - reflecting its online origins - the application of new technologies is explored throughout.

This is a book which speaks for itself: museum professionals share the experiences and perceptions they believe are the most valuable, the most urgent. It’s perceptive. Witty. Thoughtful. Concerned. Angry. Committed. Exhilarating. Invaluable.
