We will examine the concept of interactivity by explaining the definition of four different authors and
relate it to the exhibitions at the museums “Storm P. Museet” and “Arbejdermuseet” by making
think-aloud tests and semi-structured interviews. Furthermore we will look at the experience
economy in relation to the selected museums. The museums are affected to some degree by the
experience economy, “Storm P. Museet” more so than “Arbejdermuseet”, due to the structure of
their 4 year reports and yearly reports. The museums have only one element of interactivity each,
according to the definition made by Asmussen (2012), which we choose to focus on. The
informants mention two aspects of interactivity, the physical aspect, and the aspect of being active;
none of which falls under the definition made by Asmussen. His definition is very narrow, which is
why we come to the conclusion that it would benefit to review it, in relation to Caultons theory on
hands-on exhibitions. If this was the case, playing in authentic environments, like the childrens
department in “Arbejdermuseet”, is interactivity.
