NEW YORK - eMusicWire -- Mark Walhimer and Rowman & Littlefield Announce the Release of Designing Museum Experiences December 19, 2021

Designing Museum Experiences is a how-to book for creating visitor-centered museums that emotionally and intellectually connect with museum visitors, stakeholders, and donors.

Designing Museum Experiences leads readers through the methods and tools of the three stages of a museum visit (pre-visit, in-person visit, and post-visit) to motivate visitors to return and revisit the museum in the future. This museum visitation loop creates meaningful intellectual, emotional, and experiential value for the visitor.

"Designing Museum Experiences combines thought-provoking ideas on the future of museums with action-orientated advice based on Walhimer's decades of experience in the field. Essential reading for anyone working in museums."
—JIM RICHARDSON, Founder, MuseumNext

"Designing Museum Experiences is what the museum field needs now more than ever. As global communities grapple with a plethora of disruptive issues, centering on meaningful visitor experiences is key to helping our communities navigate it all. Walhimer provides a well-researched, thoughtful, and accessible resource to transition museums (from the inside out) from object-centered organizations to people-centered ones with the same care, academic rigor, and discipline one should expect."
—CHRISTY S. COLEMAN, Public Historian, Executive Director Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, and former CEO of the American Civil War Museum

"With the rise of today's Experience Economy, museums now compete against all manner of new, engaging, and remarkable experiences. The bar has been raised, and Mark Walhimer shows you how to meet and exceed that bar in designing compelling—and perhaps even transformative—museum experiences. Pay attention to the techniques in this book and use the toolbox to, as Mark says, curate not only objects but experiences."
