The valuable role of museums in providing information about past cities and ways of life, as symbols of cultured societies and as eloquent statements of achievement by architects, designers and builders can hardly be overstated. In these lights the narrative and images in this volume focus on museums of history, science and art from around the world and examine the perceptions and multiple significance of such institutions for society and for those who build them.
