A r c h i v e d I n f o r m a t i o nMuseums & Learning: A Guide for Family Visits - April 1998
Museums and Learning: A Guide to Family Visits was produced as a collaborative effort between the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Educational Research and Improvement and the Smithsonian Office of Education. Both are committed to the highest quality in learning opportunities and the importance of extending them beyond the school day.
The suggestions in the guide address the needs of children between the ages of 4 and 12. You'll see how museums can inspire as well as inform and build skills for both classroom and lifelong learning. It is our hope that each child's visit to a museum will be a thoughtful learning experience.
