Dreams of lasting peace are shattered by one momentous discovery. One of the members of an international team of scientists stationed on the moon has found an alien spacecraft – with all its incredible technology and weaponry intact. The discovery shatters the illusion of peace on Earth, as each nation joins the mad scramble to learn the terrible secrets entombed by alien visitors eons before. Only one thing prevents total war – Werner Brecht, the discoverer of the vehicle, is the only one who knows its location and he has disappeared into thin air.

The dynamics of the interplay between the visitor and the exhibition environment form complex circulation patterns. As an exhibition designer, developing an understanding of those dynamics is important for improving visitor satisfaction. However, an overwhelming number of variables may transform the exhibition design process into educated guesswork. Designing through trial and error is just not feasible. In addition, as a result of the nature of creating built environments, modifying decisions later in the design process results in significant costs. The designer has to rely on extensive experience to succeed. Accordingly, implementing a method for guidance into the design process should prove valuable for the designer.This book discusses the development stages of a simulation application for visitor circulation in exhibition environments, and presents the challenges of integrating a complex mathematical process into a visual and artistic process like exhibition design. Those issues include understanding the individual stages of development, building a theoretical foundation, creating a simulation framework, composing individual operations, and implementing the finalized simulation into the design process. Taken together, this process sheds light on the underlying challenges of creating a functioning simulation.The contents of this book will be beneficial not only for exhibition designers and simulation developers, but also anyone interested in visitor behavior and spatial design.

Exhibition environments are enticingly complex spaces: as facilitators of experience; as free-choice learning contexts; as theaters of drama; as encyclopedic warehouses of cultural and natural heritage; as two-, three- and four-dimensional storytellers; as sites for self-actualizing leisure activity. But how much do we really know about the moment-by-moment transactions that comprise the intricate experiences of visitors? To strengthen the disciplinary knowledge base supporting exhibition design, we must understand more about what ‘goes on’ as people engage with the multifaceted communication environments that are contemporary exhibition spaces. The in-depth, visitor-centered research underlying this book offers nuanced understandings of the interface between visitors and exhibition environments. Analysis of visitors’ meaning-making accounts shows that the visitor experience is contingent upon four processes: framing, resonating, channeling, and broadening. These processes are distinct, yet mutually influencing. Together they offer an evidence-based conceptual framework for understanding visitors in exhibition spaces. Museum educators, designers, interpreters, curators, researchers, and evaluators will find this framework of value in both daily practice and future planning. Designing for the Museum Visitor Experience provides museum professionals and academics with a fresh vocabulary for understanding what goes on as visitors wander around exhibitions.

This report looks at improving visitor's access to Parliament, and assesses what the focus of Parliament's visitor services should be and who should be the main target audience. The report sets out options for varying scales of visitor facilities and what kind of facilities should be provided, and what proposals for change are required. One part of the strategy is to improve public engagement with Parliament with an upgrade of the Parliamentary website. Also an upgrade of the new visitor route through the Visitor Reception Building and Westminster Hall, along with a better welcome for visitors. Further, initiatives to explain the work of the select committees to the media, along with outreach programmes to schools and the wider public. The Committee is sceptical of the value for money of a full-scale visitor centre, and states that existing strategies, such as improved educational facilities about Parliament and its' working would provide better engagement with the public. School trips to Parliament would be the best means of communicating the work and history of the institution. The Committee recommends improved facilities for the Parliamentary Education Service.
