NEMO Report on emotions and learning in museums

NEMO - The Network of European Museum Organisations,
19 February 2021, International

A new report by the NEMO Working Group LEM – the Learning Museum explores how emotions influence the construction and experience of museums.

The report explains the role of emotions in designing museums: how emotions are a pre-condition for learning and how they facilitate emotional experiences and even aim to foster empathy in visitors. Museums should operate with a ‘trigger - emotions’ effect in mind to better connect with audiences.
