The Museum: a complementary resource

Works of art serve as wonderful springboards to a variety of subjects. The Museum’s encyclopedic collection is an incredible resource for exploring questions of ethics and history, exposing oneself to cultural diversity and developing critical thinking. Beyond artistic discovery, the Museum gives schoolchildren and students an opportunity to develop an understanding of the world.

The Museum where everyone feels at home

Students develop their ability to gain an appreciation for works of art and cultural objects by taking part in brainstorming and creative activities. We hope that each student will leave the Museum with the tools and confidence they need to read art.
