Notes

  • 1. This book contains an interesting reflection despite the elapsed time, especially in the chapter by G. Kulik, pp. 2-37.
  • 2. Museums of paleontology are more similar to museums of natural science.
  • 3. See www.eldiario.es/andalucia/sevilla/escudo-franquista-Arenal_0_ 429057438.html

  • 5. See the study by the American Alliance of Museums, quoted in the ‘Museum Facts’ section on its website: www.aam-us.org/about- museums/museum-facts
  • 6. ‘Voices’ was the title of an exhibition with this spirit in the Forum of Cultures (Foro de la Cultura), Barcelona, 2002. See www.monakim- projects.com/projects/voices#slide-21 and www.fundacioforum.org/ eng/download/eng/b04.pdf
  • 7. A curious museum, which is now under renovation, mounted around a huge diorama, is the so-called Atlanta Cyclorama, which is based on an immense historical canvas (11 meters high by 117 meters long), that represents the Battle of Atlanta in 1864.
  • 8. It must not be forgotten that living history parks have a very important tourist dimension and that they often become attractors for an entire territory, with a high economic impact that cannot be assessed in an isolated manner but only as a whole for the tourist destination (Smith, Waterton, & Watson, 2012).
  • 9. These three levels, that is, 1.0 information, 2.0 communication, and 3.0 interaction, with their differentiated final products, are also linked to the four types of discourse. Indeed, 1.0 may be correlated with the descriptive and explanatory models (focusing on information), 2.0 with the narrative model (focusing on communication), and 3.0 with the participatory model (focusing on the collaborative interaction and generation of productions of memory).
  • 10. This is an old label in the Latin American context, especially the Argentine context. It has recently been used in the English-speaking world and in several European countries, linked to the approaches of participatory museums and to social sensitivity.
