For environmental learning in museum, face-to-face interpretation between exhibitor and audience is an important communication style in the explanation, the course, and the investigation, etc. In this research we call such a communication style "Enji" and we investigated its role and effectiveness in the museum.
From a museum in Italy and Taiwan and domestic case research, face-to-face interpretation "Enji" would be complementary to static exhibition. In the museum with a lot of specimen and the exhibition material,"Enji" program had not been often taken. Some programs were executed mainly with prefectural museum,"Museum of nature and human activities, Hyogo"(HYO), and the effect of them was investigated.
On the temporary exhibition "future Fabre in Hyogo" we had collected 327 specimen or photographs with the portrait of the exhibitor himself. Because of the portrait, the exhibitor seemed to become "Performer", and learned more about the exhibition, and then the exhibition had been improved. We also carried out animal and plant distributional research project of Tampopo(dandelion), Katatsumuri(snail) and Miyamaakane(dragonfly, Sympetrum pedemontanum) with a lot of people including children. Miyamaakane project had not been spread its area of investigation more than elementary school district while the Katatsumuri and Tampopo spread across the city area or crossing several prefectures. Smaller project obtained more long-term and much face-to-face communication among participants, then several participants had become exhibitors or performers of local learning on Miyamaakane and its environment. As well as educators in the museum, they had presented "Enji" programs, i. e., exhibits, workshop, outdoor activities, festivals.
These results should be succeeded to the business in the museum, HYO to work for further program development and the measurement of the effect.
