This UK publication is a resource for museum staff members who seek to develop family programming. Beginning with a definition of family learning, and some of the benefits of family engagement, author Clare Meade goes on to provide tools including graphs and charts for developing programs in museums. Meade gives examples of museums in the UK that facilitate successful family programs. She also provides sample lesson plans, and tips for developing partnerships. Meade also addresses some of the factors and barriers that may prevent visitors from engaging in educational opportunities in museums.
