Description or Abstract: 

This article discusses notion of "bimodal" visitation patterns by museum visitors, in which people are either interested or not in the material presented. The authors argue that this no-time, lots-of-time notion is misleading, and present data that contradicts its alleged commonness. They also discuss how timing data is and can be used by exhibit developers to improve their exhibits.
