I presented: “Travelling for Museum Experiences – Understanding International Visitors at Danish Museums” at Copenhagen University, Faculty of Humanities / Københavns Universitet, Det Humanistiske Fakultet

 Some museums produce bilingual or multilingual exhibitions. But what do we know about international museum visitors?

Which considerations do international (potential) visitors have before theydecide to visit Denmark and Danish museums? How do their visits at museums in Denmark differ from Danish visitors’? These were some of the questions I addressed in this short presentation.
