Research that is done at the very beginning of the planning process is often called "front-end studies". Although they are most often associated with exhibition development, such studies are equally useful in planning programs, marketing campaigns, or entirely new instit-utions. Based on written reports and interviews with those who implement studies, this book discusses how people learn; their understandings, attitudes, and beliefs; and whey they visit museums in the first place. It is sure to challenge museums' traditional approaches to exhibit and program design.
