In 2014, a joint PhD research project that centred on the profession of museum guide was launched by the education departments of the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, the Van Gogh Museum and the University of Amsterdam. The research was prompted by the realisation that little is known about learning and educating within the museum context. Despite being a vital component of the museum’s current visitor services policy, museum guiding was a neglected field of academic pedagogic research.

The purpose of the study, conducted by doctoral candidate Mark Schep, was to arrive at the profile of an effective museum guide for the school sector in art and history museums. What is a good museum tour? What is a good museum guide?

The research focused on museum tours aimed at primary and secondary school students. By emphasizing the specific setting of the museum as learning environment, the outcomes also offer food for thought concerning the profession of museum guide in general, also for other demographics.

This publication edited by Pauline Kintz and Mark Schep contains a brief outline of the results of the PhD research; a practical guide to educators and museum guides.
