Abstract

From its earliest incarnation in Alexandria to its modern, twenty-first century counterpart, museums of all types, shapes and sizes share a common purpose – learning. Whilst the type of learning, the reason behind the latter or the way in which the visitor learns might be different the value of the museum in encouraging and supporting both formal and informal learning opportunities across a range of subjects remains. This article will provide an overview of the development of the museum as a place of learning before making specific links to the modern school curriculum and in particular to the use of the museum in the study of history. It provides a background which will be built upon through further research into how schools today employ museums in the learning of history and the article will end with suggestions for this.
