Many art appreciation instructors base their final grades not only on the quizzes and exams they give, but also on the report students make during a visit to their local museum.

The Second Edition of the Museum Journal provides a ready- made format for this assignment and now features two sections:

1. A helpful checklist on how to prepare for a museum visit, including a list of what to bring to museum, a summary of what to look for and take note of while there, and a tally of the various forms of analysis.

2. An exploration of the many services a museum offers as part of the greater community through an in-depth look at several important regional museums across the United States.

a. The Toledo Museum of Art, OH – Architecture
b. The High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA – History
c. The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX – Sense of Heritage
d. The Tucson Museum of Art, AZ – Expanding Our Cultural Traditions
e. The Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY – The Museum as Art History
f. The Birmingham Museum of Art, AL – Public Outreach
g. The J. Paul Getty Museum of Los Angeles, CA – Educational Outreach
h. The Portland Art Museum, OR – Collections of Special Significance
i. The Indianapolis Museum of Art, IN – Collections of Special Significance
j. The Pérez Art Museum, Miami, FL – Museums and the Wider World
