How to Visit a Museum.
The primary aim of this study is to encourage schools and museums to unite their efforts to further the use of the museum for teaching purposes and to promote the full development of creative faculties. The educational function of the museum is explored in consideration of the thirteen to eighteen year old age group. A recurring theme throughout the entire work is the school-museum relationship, with emphasis primarily on the contributions made by Western European civilization. This study also seeks to show that other artistic treasures accessible to the public (objects of art, monuments, cities, etc.) can be exploited by the same techniques. Chapters deal with the aims and means of the museum, the school curriculum and the museum's activities, the museum as a school, ways in which experiences and reflections on the impressions obtained in the museum can be used in education, and discussions of procedures used in visiting different types of museums.
