Hands-On Museums: Partners in Learning. A Report.
The 15 museums featured demonstrate the convergence of two ideas--the development of new kinds of museum experience, especially for the young, and the ongoing search for significant out-of-school educational opportunities. These museums provide students with educational experiences typically not possible within the schoolhouse. The purpose of these case studies is to render more visible the museum-education idea, to show the variety of programs and facilities that have emerged from disparate beginnings and yet have similar purposes, and to suggest some issues, facility implications, and funding sources for those planning such facilities.
