Learning experiences refers to any interaction, pathways, program, or other
involvement in which learning takes place in museums and collections, whether it
occurs in traditional educational settings or nontraditional environments (learning
through games and interactive software applications). Because people learn in an
extensive variety of surroundings and ways, the term is used as a more inclusive term
to support the new goals of an educational interaction/ learning in modern museums
and galleries. It reflects larger pedagogical and technological changes that have
occurred today in the design and delivery of knowledge, and it represents an attempt

to update conceptions for whom and of how, when, and where learning can come
about. Besides, the importance of open access in creating sustainable societies for the
future generations is a key challenge for the Symposium. The issues we face with
energy and the environment are complex and include all aspects of sustainability as
well as society. Expressly, cultural sustainability is increasingly seen as a fourth
dimension of sustainable development. However, studies on cultural viability in
museums are rare. Thus, the other pillar aim of our symposium is to fill this gap:
heritage exposure, environmental behavior, openness to the public, and effectiveness
and enactment in collecting, preserving, and researching the cultural heritage.
