Museums and health: a wider view
Looking at museums from a public health perspective
Most approaches to museums and health are based on a treatment model – the provision of group activities delivered either by museum staff or health service partners which enhance the health and wellbeing of individuals.
This session takes a wider view, looking at what museums look like from a public health perspective, at population level health benefits of museum attendance, and at how museum culture needs to change to enhance health and wellbeing impact.
