Museums have been a domain of study and design intervention for
Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) for several decades. However, while
resources providing overviews on the key issues in the scholarship have been
produced in the fields of museum and visitor studies, no such resource as
yet existed within HCI. This book fills this gap and covers key issues
regarding the study and design of HCIs in museums. Through an on-site focus,
the book examines how digital interactive technologies impact and shape
galleries, exhibitions, and their visitors. It consolidates the body of work
in HCI conducted in the heritage field and integrates it with insights from
related fields and from digital heritage practice. Processes of HCI design
and evaluation approaches for museums are also discussed. This book draws
from the authors' extensive knowledge of case studies as well as from their
own work to provide examples, reflections, and illustrations of relevant
concepts and problems.

This book is designed for students and early career researchers in HCI or
Interaction Design, for more seasoned investigators who might approach the
museum domain for the first time, and for researchers and practitioners in
related fields such as heritage and museum studies or visitor studies.
Designers who might wish to understand the HCI perspective on visitor-facing
interactive technologies may also find this book useful.
