Recognized by the National School Boards Association as one of the outstanding curriculum ideas in the United States, the award-winning museum program operates in 18 sites in Greater Miami and the Beaches. The President's Committee on the Arts and Humanities included the program in their 1999 report Gaining the Arts Advantage.
