The High Museum of Art has conducted years of research into family audiences and what motivates them to come, how they use family spaces, and what they value about them. The book Curiosity, Wonder and Play: Creating Family Spaces in Art Museums (2022) shares insights, best practices, and lessons learned from years of experience in creating dedicated spaces for families in a wide range of art museums. Through case studies, in-depth stories, and engaging graphics and images, the book identifies key issues that museum professionals need to consider when developing family spaces in museums. Each section contextualizes groundbreaking visitor research with how museum educators have used those findings to better understand family audiences. The book’s comprehensive advice covers topics ranging from creating or updating an interactive family space, understanding your audience, hiring a designer, opening your doors to the public, and more. Learn how to develop fun, safe, inclusive spaces that inspire wonder and curiosity and provide meaning making and family bonding, all while cultivating committed museum visitors.
