Kyoto National Museum International Symposium <br>MUSEUM EDUCATION IN ASIA TODAY: <br>Case Studies from National Museums of  Korea, Singapore, and Japan <br>Saturday, February 4, 2023

Hybrid Format: Kyoto National Museum (Heisei Chishinkan Lecture Theater) and Online Zoom Webinar
Simultaneous Interpretation in English, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese


Museum education in Japan has been strongly influenced by the ideas and practices of museums in Europe and the United States, long considered to be leaders in the field. Accordingly, Japanese museum professionals—some of whom have themselves studied museology and museum education abroad—have regularly introduced Western museum trends and developments into Japan.
In contrast, there has been less flow of information among educators at museums within Asia, despite their geographical and cultural proximity and their wide range of innovative educational programs. In this symposium, we consider new possibilities for the future of museum education by highlighting a variety of initiatives taking place in four national museums in Asia.
