US Museum Advocacy Day

“It is a time to publically acknowledge the vital role of museums, to salute the people who contribute their life to make them meaningful … and, to thank them for their commitment to educating our young.

Twenty years ago The American Association of Museums published a report on the future of American museums including one chapter entitled “A New Imperative for Learning” which admonished, that “museums have yet to realize their full potential as educational institutions.” And the report noted: “The museum-school relationship shows considerable potential … particularly in light of the recent calls for strengthening the quality of instruction in science, the arts and the humanities in the schools.””
