The Pauline Gandel Children’s Gallery is a new exhibition at Melbourne Museum designed for the uniquely young age range of 0-5 year olds. The goal of this project was to help the museum understand the gallery’s current use and educational value. The team conducted a tracking and timing study, interviews, and observational studies to evaluate the popularity, holding power, and educational value of exhibits. Results showed that designers were successful in providing the unique age range with engaging learning experiences.
