The Innovative Museum: It's Up To You... brings together for the first time in book form a rich, varied and inspirational collection of essays which examine the role and the practice of innovation in the museum context worldwide.
"In the end, it is up to you. [A recent study] concluded that the most important factor in the success of a museum was a committed director who was willing to give 200% to the cause. The path is long, but the rewards are great. Develop a thick skin and don’t be discouraged. Keep your eyes on the prize! You can get there and it will be worth it." - Lyndel King, Director, Frederick R Weisman Art Museum, University of Minnesota.
In its 440 pages, The Innovative Museum shares the experience of some of the world's leading international thinkers and practitioners in the field of innovation and museums. Together, these essays provide sound, practice-based examples of the process of successful innovation, especially in the key areas of communication, inclusion and change in a museum, gallery and heritage context.
