The participatory museum

Links to Nina Simon's Museum 2.0 blog are pretty frequent on Best of 3, and many people working in museums and galleries got a first-hand opportunity to soak in Nina's enthusiasm and knowledge last November when she visited New Zealand to speak at the National Digital Forum.

Now you can really sink yourself into what Nina advocates with the publication of her book The Participatory Museum: "a practical guide to working with community members and visitors to make cultural institutions more dynamic, relevant, essential places."

Appropriately, Nina offers loads of options for accessing, buying, and discussing the book - see them all on The Participatory Museum website.

I love how she's gradually putting it all online, and allowing space for us to add comments. I really hope I can find time to read through it!
