Museum-School-Student. National Partnership Network among Museums and Secondary Schools

Students open a door of a museum and a lesson starts. That is far from ordinary lesson. Participants’ performance will not be evaluated by grades and objects of learning are extraordinary too – these are museums exhibits. The whole learning process is based on cooperation and creativity. Various means of communication are being utilized here: expositions, guided tours, special programs, movie watching, concerts, seminars and conferences. The lesson like this in a museum in no more a dream.
In the year 2011-2015 Association of Lithuanian Museums and 17 Lithuanian Museums implemented the project “Museum-School-Student. National Partnership Network among Museums and Secondary Schools. During the period of the project much educational work has been done in order to promote efficient cooperation among museums and schools and to involve museum visiting into secondary school curricula. During two years 17 educational programs in partial coordination with schooling programs have been implemented. Lessons took place not only in museums, but also in cultural heritage objects, historical sites, scientific laboratories and artistic workshops.
In 2013 recommendations for creating the national model of cooperation among museums and schools were created. 20 Lithuanian museum specialists visited Great Britain and Denmark, countries where museum visiting has been a part of general curriculum for more than 40 years.
In this project as partners participated many Lithuanian museums: Lithuanian Art Museum, National M. K. Čiurlionis Art Museum, National Museum Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania, Lithuanian Sea Museum, Šiauliai Aušra Museum, Maironis Lithuanian Literature Museum, Lithuanian Aviation Museum, Lithuanian Theatre, Music and Cinema Museum, Lithuanin Energy and Technology Museum, A.
