Cultural Fieldtrips Make a Difference: Science Says Art Fieldtrips Will Make Your Kids Better Thinkers (and Nicer People) 

Hear the Groundbreaking Evidence of Impact From the Team at Crystal Bridges and University of Arkansas  




Brian Kisida, Senior Research Associate for the University of Arkansas Department of Education Reform (DER), will describe the study on the educational value of field-trips.  The study was published in Education NextEducational Researcher and Museum.  Read the Op-Ed published November 2013 by Brian Kisida, Jay P. Greene, and Daniel H. Bowen in the NY Times.

Anne Kraybill
Distance Learning Project Manager at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, will share details of the school visits program and how the research informed the museum's distance learning initiatives.  

This study involved nearly 11,000 K-12 students and 500 teachers at over 100 schools, making it the largest of its kind. This research is unique because it used a random assignment design to measure the causal impacts of school tours of an art museum. 


The results revealed: 

  • Increase in critical thinking, recall, tolerance, empathy and cultural interest
  • Increase in future cultural consumption
  • Educational gains were larger for minority students from high-poverty schools
