MUSE is a pioneering Museum Studies program developed by Newport Art Museum, promoting interest in museum careers by offering a credited museum studies art course for high school youth in partnership with area schools.

MUSE includes site visits to museums and historic sites, engagement with professional staff and artists, and exhibition preparation training.

Newport Art Museum is honored to have received funding for MUSE from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) through a 2013 Museums For America grant.
