Education and the Museum
Societal perspective of the purpose and significance of museums has shifted in modern times. No longer are they simply storage of ancient artifacts, but they provide deep insight into their designated field. Today’s museums demand a reaction from their visitor. In the San Francisco Bay Area, the varieties of museums display a wide spectrum of influences. Children museums, science museums, history museums, and art museums all practice unique methods to achieve their own specified mission. The success of reaching their missions has come under study in recent years in order to establish the reason, importance, and justification of museum’s existence.
