“A new large-scale experiment on over 10,000 students finds that a one-hour tour of an art museum can increase empathy, tolerance and critical thinking skills…
…The results showed that, compared with those who had not been to the museum, students who had visited:
- Thought about art more critically.
- Displayed greater empathy about how people lived in the past.
- Expressed greater levels of tolerance towards people with different views.” See link:
