Museum exchange 'successful'

A recent Otago Museum staff exchange trip to Bangkok, Thailand, proved highly successful, museum marketing and development co-ordinator Juliet Pierce said.

Ms Pierce became the first Otago Museum staff member to take part in a staff exchange trip to the National Science Museum of Thailand last month.

She gained new insights into museum-based science education through the two-week trip, which included a week observing and taking part in an outreach visit by museum staff to a regional area outside the Thai capital.

The Thai museum had considerable expertise in running lively, interactive science shows for youngsters, which were cost-effective and educationally valuable, she said.
