The importance of inspiration in museums- and I need your advice

Hello- I came across a great definition recently, that ‘inspiration is the feeling that motivates people to do something’. I love this, and have been thinking about it in relation to one of my main bits of work- which is looking at how natural history museums can effectively engage people with their environment, and support them to get more active (intellectually, physically, emotionally, even politically) with the environment.

I’d be very interested to hear anyone’s thoughts on how museums can connect with the feelings that people hold about nature. Whether it is your fondest memory, an extraordinary experience, thinking about a small thing differently, sharing stories, or anything else, please let me know.
