Abstract

The up-to-date museum is the highest possible type of an educational institution; it supplies the text accompanied by the object. (Object teaching.) All museums should be, in a manner, provincial, i.e., organized to cover a certain territory as a specialty, whether this territory be a single state, several states, the United States, or the whole world. In this connection it should be remembered that almost any single state will produce a much more varied and larger amount of museum material than is commonly supposed. The geology, flora, fauna, prehistoric and civil history of a state, will, in many instances, nearly duplicate its border states, and very well represent the United States.
