The Active Museum-Goer

By Janice Steiber Rous, Andrew S. Ackerman

Eugene Borowitz, September 1, 1978

The authors discuss the efforts of the Jewish Museum to make their historical and cultural holdings personally engaging to visiting children, using as an example an exhibition of textiles from Jewish communities spanning large geographic and temporal distances. They draw implications for the field of museum education in general.
