Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 031324538X, Hardcover)

From aquariums to zoos, this unique international reference source for museums for children (including science centers, planetariums, botanical gardens, and art centers) provides 235 institutional profiles. All museums included responded to data surveys that served both to collect information and to invite dialogue for further clarification. . . . Institutional profiles from 21 countries (alphabetically, Australia to Zimbabwe) provide narrative descriptions containing historical summaries; commentary on operations; building, gallery, room or area descriptions; collection strength; exhibits; subject and program specialties; staff members, including volunteers; audience and attendance; institutional changes and trends; funding sources; and publications. Three appendixes, a name, institution, and subject index, and an extensive 20-page selected bibliography complete this volume. . . . Zucker has compiled a fine volume for public and academic libraries. Choice
