what will the museum of the future be like?
I am writing now a historiographic review on the visitor research studies in museum communities and I have a challenge to find good examples of the use of ethnographic methodologies to study audiences (both in physical and virtual environments). If you came across of any relevant information could you please advise what sources to read to learn more about this topic! Any of your suggestions will be very much appreciated! Thank you so much!
Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

Many software usability techniques are based on ethnographic methods - you could try authors like Preece and Sharp, Shneiderman and Plaisant, or Dumas and Redish to start with? http://visitorstudies.org/ might also have some information on techniques and how widely they're applied in museums.
Thank you so much for your response! I do appreciate your help a lot!
you are suggesting very good sources, Thank you! But my challenge is to find concrete examples of ethnographic studies within a MUSEUM context....
anyway, thanks again and have a nice day
