Abstract

Fomal learning for researchers and the cognitive benefits for visitors had been the traditonal prerogative of museum institutions. In the process of promoting the concept of heritage conservation to the wider community, museums had gradually institionalized the concept of 'viewer experience" as a way to achieve greater public relevance and in turn, public participation in their mission. However balancing the needs of the visitors while considering additional strain and risk on the collection associated with increased viewership needs careful consideration. A Case Study exploration of the new Pitt Rivers Museum Research Centre at Oxford University will demonstrate how an integrated approach to balancing the needs of presentation, and visitor experience will enhance the aims of collection sustainability within an anthropological museum setting.
