Learning Value Of Childrens Museums Research Agenda

January 20th, 2015

The Association of Children’s Museums (ACM) is celebrating a milestone: the publication of the Learning Value of Children’s Museums Research Agenda. This multi-phase project was supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), facilitated by ACM and the University of Washington’s (UW) Museology Graduate Program, and includes ideas, priorities, and questions generated by the early childhood education and museum learning fields.

For the next phase of this work, ACM invites the field to use the agenda in new and ongoing research and evaluation studies. By using a common framework to guide diverse questions and explorations about learning, ACM hopes that the field can build a collective body of knowledge demonstrating the value of children’s museums. To support this work, ACM and UW are embarking on a three-year second phase of the project called Building a Practicing Research Network on the Children’s Museum Field.
