Museums are a wonderful meeting ground for the shared interests of schools and families. Field trips and family outings to museums enrich what your children are learning in school and help them link it to the larger world. Schools and teachers, through field trips and other activities, play an important role in introducing students to Museums and using them as learning resources. By working together, schools and families can help children make the most of visits to Museums. (Taken from: Museums & Learning: A Guide for Family Visits - April 1998)
There is no right or wrong way to visit a museum. A last minute trip can be just as rewarding as a planned visit.
