This study was made in order to determine the practicability of establishing school and community museums in the State of Kansas. Many of the state, private, and W. P. A. museums were visited in order to learn the best museum practices and procedures. According to the best authorities every small school and community museum should have four divisions of exhibits, history, art, science, and industrial materials. The methods of collecting , preparing, preserving, and exhibiting history, art, science, and industrial materials were outlined. The classifying, labelling, cataloguing, and arranging of exhibits according to the recognized standard procedure are presented. School and community museums with their educational values may be had without prohibitive cost by any community.
