Museums at Play: Games, Interaction and Learning
"Museums are using games in many ways – for interpretation, education, marketing, outreach and events. Museums at Play showcases tried and tested examples from the sector and seeks to inspire further informed use of games as part of the Museum toolbox. It also draws on relevant experience from other sectors, and on the experience of game designers and theorists. It looks at learnings from other disciplines and explores the possibilities of interaction using gaming within museums. Museums At Play is edited by freelance strategist Katy Beale, who has wide-ranging interest in the field and extensive experience of helping creative and cultural organisations interact with and develop their audiences, having recently worked with Tate, Science Museum, BBC Radio 3, and the Crafts Council"
