Visiting the Museum: Learning Resource

While most students understand that objects inside museums have important cultural, ideological, economic, and art historical value, they don’t always recognize the role of these institutions to shape and reinforce such values. AHTR’s Visiting the Museum Learning Resource aims to help students think more critically about the broader implications of art museums and to better understand their integral relation to the study and practice of art history.
