Experiences in the museum are a great way for your students to use critical thinking skills and apply concepts learned in the classroom in a new context.
Docent-led museum tours emphasize close looking, discussion, and critical and creative thinking by making connections with works of art. Want to lead your own experience in the museum? Teacher-led tours allow teachers to construct visits for their students. We offer a wide range of resources for those who wish to create their own student experiences.
