The Museum’s approach has many influences that include classic theorists such as Piaget and contemporary practitioners such as Gardner and Vygotsky. Museum staff utilizes the latest research and ideas combined with time-tested methods and visitor feedback to provide a visitor experience that addresses the whole child and meets the needs of all learners. To better understand how the Museum succeeds, it’s important to first explore the nature of the learning process, how it occurs and how Miami Children’s Museum translates its mission into action. The Museum practices a guided approach to active learning that promotes free-choice learning and appeals to all learners by being standards-based, inquiry-based and play-based as well as encouraging children to discover information at their own pace, construct questions and explore answers.
