In recent years, museums have been experiencing a transformation in the way they communicate history. The knowledge-based and educational aspect of museums have evolved into more user-orientated exhibitions and activities. Therefore, museums must take a larger range of different museum visitors into consideration as they have developed since the establishment of museums and now have different demands.
This project examines the development within the field of Danish museums. It examines how the Danish museums must reconsider their role as traditional educators through a classic museum exhibition, and rethink how they can communicate the past to a growing technological audience.
The theoretical approach covers framing of the museum experience, and the narratives in the exhibitions and how these are interlinked. By interviewing professionals from the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde, Roskilde Museum, The Round Tower in Copenhagen, the National Museum of Denmark and The Old Town in Aarhus, we have been able to analyse how Danish Museums balance the communication of the past and history. The project investigates how museums still aim for scientific and academic research in exhibitions and communication, despite a new focus on the entertainment aspect within the museum field.
