In addition to other comments made-
Even when a child (or and adult for that matter) only visits the
Museum for 1 hour, we try to send them away with tools that they can
use - either aesthetic tools for use with other art experiences,
higher order or critical thinking skills they can use forever, or
ways to link art with their own lives.

Interaction and participation is the key to this. The
children/adults must have a chance to practice what we teach them in
the galleries. In our case we use gallery games and activities to
reinforce active discussion.
