Abstract

The purpose of this paper is the identification of issues from the perspective views of museum scholars and experts toward creating direction in developing museum exhibitions in Malaysia for public learning. Recently, museums have developed a strong interest in technology as their path more towards of leisure industries. However, there are contradicting opinions arising between using “traditional” approach and “interactive” technology exhibition techniques for visitor learning. This paper initiates a search for such literature and identifies key concepts for further deliberations. Finally, these findings are intended to formulate the best-practice on learning “tool” in a museum exhibition practice.

Keywords: Museum; museum learning and museum exhibition.
