The Johnson Museum is widely recognized regionally as “Ithaca’s Art Museum.” Membership is a vital means of support for the Museum, which serves a broad public audience. Last year fifty schools from Ithaca and across the region brought more than eight thousand children to the Museum. Teachers’ lesson plans are developed in collaboration with Museum educators and designed to meet national and New York State Learning Standards in the Visual Arts, Social Studies, Language Arts, Math, and Science. Among the most popular Museum programs are the OMNI Program (Objects and Their Makers: New Insights) and Kids Discover the Trail! (KDT!).
