The role of Museums in Hand will be to build bridges between museums and inner city public schools with popular and cutting edge technology. Docent guided video tours will be produced and distributed on video compatible MP3 players among public schools in low income areas where access to museums and technology is limited. Lesson plans developed by the museum education staff in tandem with educators and our staff, will compliment the “virtual tour” the class will go on. This project takes an innovative approach to bring museum exhibits created for students, to students.
