Abstract [sv]

Denna kandidatuppsats består av en analys av museala miljöer. I undersökningen har fallstudier gjorts på Naturhistoriska riksmuseets utställning Natur i Sverige samt Nordiska museets utställning Modemakt samt lärmiljö Lekstugan. Syftet med undersökningen har varit att studera hur kulturarv används och utvecklas inom museipedagogiken riktad mot barn. Undersökningen utgår ifrån ett multimodalt perspektiv med fokus på lärresurser.


Frågeställningarna hanterar museernas riktning mot barn och unga, hur målen för detta ser ut samt hur det ser ut i verkligheten. Undersökningen har visat att båda berörda museer har en tydlig riktning mot barn och unga samt gott och väl följer regeringens riktlinjer för statliga museer.


I uppsatsen tydliggörs Naturhistoriska riksmuseets och Nordiska museets olika sätt att angripa frågan ”riktning mot barn och unga”. Detta kan utgöra inspiration för andra museer eller för de berörda museerna att utveckla sin riktning ytterligare. Båda museernas vis att kommunicera mot barn och unga bedöms ha goda förutsättningar för lärande.
