Arts and Activities Magazine '97 or '96 for Art Education teachers has had
some advice on visiting museums.
I have escorted six fourth grades to a musuem. Prep them on behavior, and
listening to the docent. Also prep the class on asking questions that stick to
the subject. Elementary teachers were present and we had a good time. Topics,
questions and answers were always concise (less than 45 minutes considering
the grade level).
