Layout of museums?

Krukar, J. (2014). Walk, Look, Remember: The Influence of the Gallery’s Spatial Layout on Human Memory for an Art Exhibition. Behavioral Sciences, 4(3), 181-201. doi:10.3390/bs4030181

Krukar argues that a comfortable space does not enhance the memory. A badly designed museum can definitely inhibit that experience. Current data does not determine where the boundaries of a badly designed gallery lies. A badly designed space can shift the potential outcome of a cautiously prepared, curated exhibition into one driven mainly by salience. Put the National Center for Civil and Human Rights into your mind and think how this can affect the visitation there since it is not a diversity of race there.
