South Pacific museums
Experiments in culture
review by Conal McCarthy
An edited collection on museums in the South Pacific, the first of its kind, is a notable achievement. While not intending to be a general reader in museum studies, this overview of new museums in the region contains a range of articles on a variety of institutions in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.
