Abstract: Museums and informal science learning centers often use awe to entice, inspire and educate. Recent studies have suggested that awe can also impact critical thinking skills. We gave surveys to 1,057 guests at a science and an art museum to look for how aspects of awe differ among spaces and activities. Critical thinking was also measured utilizing a framework established in the art museum field.
