Nikonanou, N., 2010. Museum education: From Theory To Practice (Mousiopedagogiki: Apo tin Theoria stin Praxi), Patakis, Athens (in Greek) [ISBN 978-960-16-3466-1]

The aim of this study is to contribute to the discussion on the educational role of museums examining the elements that compose the profile of museum education in Europe and Greece. The author analyses the historical background of the emergence and evolution of museum-education, as a process of transition from the traditional museum-temple to the museum as a place of learning. Contemporary theories are also examined, in order to describe the function of the museum today as a place of experience, entertainment, inspiration and creativity. Case studies from the Greek experience are analyzed, in order to discuss issues of design and implementation of museum-educational activities, connecting theory to practice.
