Field Trip: Museums

Monument Lab Field Trip: Museums is a set of self-guided activities designed to help you investigate museums and explore the histories and stories that they reveal (and hide). The guide encourages you to reflect on questions of learning, labor, and access in arts, culture, history, and science institutions, and to propose your own ideas for making museums more accessible and less exclusive spaces. Monument Lab Field Trip: Museums invites you to critically explore museums with your family, friends, classmates, and neighbors in a way that feels safe and accessible for you, whether in-person or online. Be sure to share your ideas, questions, drawings, and photos from your museum Field Trip with us on social media, and tag us @Monument_Lab.
