Even as many schools scale back on field trips, a new study shows that such "culturally enriching" school field trips, such as a trip to art museums, can yield academic benefits for students. One recent study of students who visited an Arkansas art museum found, among other things, improvements in students' knowledge of and ability to think critically about art and improved "historical empathy." The study found that 82% of students who saw Norman Rockwell's "Rosie the Riveter" remembered the painting was about the role of women joining the workforce during World War II.
