Five Ways Museums Can Increase Empathy in the World
Museums are a safe place to explore other points of view, cultures, and histories.
- Education and design aimed at raising awareness about people, places, and subjects of study outside of our normal experience;
- Experiential learning aimed at increasing emotional involvement with the subjects presented;
- Communicating and practicing empathy as an institutional core value, thereby role-modeling the importance of empathy in their institutional policies and practices.
