This study identifies the primary-grade teacher candidates' views on museum education. The research is a descriptive research that used survey model. The study group is made up of 209 primary-grade teacher candidates who were seniors in the Primary-Grade Teaching Program. They were all attending Konya University's Faculty of Education. A survey prepared by the researcher was used to get teacher candidates' views on museums and museum education. During data analysis, frequency and percentage were used. As a result, it was found that teacher candidates had positive opinions about museum education, but a significant number of them (71.30 %) perceived that museum education should be used especially during history lessons. They mentioned that museum education was discussed mostly in social studies and civilization history courses during their university education. For the teacher candidates who think multi-directionally on this subject, museum education as an effective method should be used in every lesson. (Contains 3 tables.)
