On 12 th -13 th November 2007, museum professionals assembled in National Museum Institute to participate in a conference on "Issues in Indian Museum Education: National Perspectives, International Trends’. The conference which brought together individuals from various museums and cultural institutions aimed at bringing to light the initiatives taken in the field of Museum Education in India by the Indian Scholars and also to examine the American Museum Education practices. This conference was collaborative effort between the National Museum Institute and United States Educational Foundation in India. In the History of Indian Museums spanning over almost two hundred years, museum education has been an important part of the museums. Inspite of some good land breaking examples of museum education in Indian Museums, there has been no effort to deliberate upon the subject in an academic exchange manner through a seminar. Thus there is lack of a baseline and a manual for the Indian Museums Education System. The effort of this conference has been to create useful reference material with the Indian Museum Education Case studies along with some examples from the American museums for the students and scholars alike. The deliberations of the conference were around the status of museum education in India and the future course of museum education work. The conference sessions were designed to provide an opportunity for the museum professionals to discuss issues pertaining to museum education and education policy; museum education and schools; museum education and outreach; museum education and communication; museum education and social change; museum education and varied target audience. The focus, through discussions and questions, was on "where have we been; where are we going?" Few of the key questions raised by this conference were ‘if museum visits are compulsory for students in India, why do they not come back as independent return visitors?’; ‘How to convey the educational potential of museums to all categories of visitors?’; ‘does the museum education system in Indian museums match with the education policy of India? ‘Can Museum Education be a tool for social Change?’ This publication summarizes the presentations of various speakers in the form of paper submissions authored by the invited speakers to each session of the conference. The proceedings are divided into two broad parts covering the case studies from various Indian museums and the experiences from the museums from United States of America. Among the Indian participants are noted names of the field as Dr. Saroj Ghose, Dr. Shobita Punja, Prof. K. K. Basa, Dr. S. M. Nair, Dr. Asif Naqvi, Renu Jathar, and Rama Lakshmi. The international perspective was elucidated by the American participants such as Gretchen Jennings, Alicia Stevens, Tim Groove, Dr. Ray Rist and Roberta Altman. Articles by Dr. Saroj Ghose, Dr. Premlata Puri and Prof. K. K. Basa present an overview of the approach to Museum education in India. These papers also present the audience with potential possibilities in museum education through case studies and examples. Dr. Saroj Ghose in his article ‘Immersive Visualization in Story-Telling Museums: A new tool for museum education’ demonstrates the importance of hands-on exhibits in history museums. The paper stresses that use of technology has the capacity to change the image and conventional nature of the history, art and archaeology museums in India and enliven these museums. The paper, ‘Museum "Education"- "Why" and "How" with focus on diversity of Indian Cultural Traditions’ by Dr. Premlata Puri put forwards creative methodologies for an integrated approach to museum education for various categories of museum visitors. The article by Prof. K. K. Basa is on ‘Getting Educated: Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalaya as a Facilitator’. The paper explores the role of museums as a facilitator of education in the context of Indian museums. Various museum educati. N° de ref. de la librería 109939
