The new curriculum reform documents and syllabuses in Hong Kong have been putting emphasis on learning beyond classroom and life-wide learning. Learning through the use of museum has been promoted by teachers as a channel for learning in the field. However, there is a paucity of research into the actual impact of museum education on teaching and learning as well as its connectivity with the formal curriculum. This paper seeks to adopt a case study with the use of qualitative approach to analyse the practices and problems of learning in and through the museum, with a view to exploring possible alternatives for the improvement in pedagogical devices.
