LEITE, Maria Isabel. Children, the elderly and museum: memory and discovery. Cad. CEDES [online]. 2006, vol.26, n.68, pp. 74-85. ISSN 0101-3262. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-32622006000100006.
This text deals with the relation that children establish/can establish in a museum, most particularly in art museums, understood as exchange, discovery, sense production, creation spaces and, above all, as memory, history and life spaces. It also highlights the importance, for their own formation as social, historical and cultural subjects, of the links and associations that, based on their aesthetic experiences, the children make/can make with the cultural representations of other time-spaces and people from other generations.
