Then there are curious participants who enjoy the collection, there are committed enthusiasts who are quite knowledgeable about the collections are also want to learn more. The discerning independents are those that are knowledgeable and want to develop their views further (Templeton, 2011). Given this diverse range of visitor community for a museum, it is no wonder that museums are forced to develop theme galleries to meet the needs and interests of separate groups. Museums like to employ the techniques of related works when presenting collection where works will be related by time, or location, or technique. Sometimes they are placed as contrasting works, or there can be musical scores played based on the time for which an art is presented (Templeton, 2011). However, when considering diverse segments of audience museums are increasingly focusing on much more interactive techniques.
Museums like the Smithsonian, in addition to their usual galleries also make reservation for galleria for cross community exhibitions. Here, American heritage shows are conducted along with exhibits from ethnic communities. Local artists are encouraged to present their work and the staffs at the Smithsonian work with the curators to present integrated story lines for reaching out to the interests of the diverse segments of audience (Smithsonian Institution, 2001). The Glasgow museum also has what is called the Open Museum project that is completely dedicated to working with the local community. While this was the case in the 1990’s in more recent years, the museum includes community engagement projects in some of the other connected museum buildings (Munro, 2014).
