Future Visitors and Museum Advocates

Remember that article we read at the very beginning of the semester about creating museum advocates in young children and teens? Well, turns out teens have admitted they’ve had some pretty memorable and life-changing experiences thanks to museums. This article discusses the power of programming in creating influential experiences for teens in museums. The teens surveyed, many of whom are now adults, ranked museum experiences as some of the most positive and influential experiences of their lives. Plus, the study proves that visitorship as young children and teens increased their chances of continuing to visit museums and cultural institutions on a regular basis throughout their lives. Check out the study link within the article, too. It’s pretty cool to see the results of evaluative studies.
