Description: 

In this article, a Framework for Museum Practice (FMP) is proposed as a challenge to ineffective methods used during school field trips in an attempt to educate youth. It is hypothesized that the FMP, grounded in the Cultural Historical Activity Theory, will act as a guideline for museum professionals in providing more effective learning opportunities. Empirical evidence suggests the FMP has potential as a strategy for better informal learning practices.
