An instructional practice gaining increasing popularity in schools across the United States is that of uniting the forces of schools and museums to form school-museum collaborations. Schools at all levels have begun to link with cultural arts institutions to design and implement programs. These collaborations have long-term goals that include activity-based learning experiences, inquiry teaching and learning, hands-on learning, problem solving and enhancement of cultural intelligence.
