The purpose of this study was to examine the benefits of museum outreach programs, specifically the ways in which such programs contribute to the social, physical, and language development of children. Findings revealed how a museum's commitment to reach out to families in underserved populations positively affects the developmental needs of children, which may be lacking in their current living situation.
