Malaysian education system has shown remarkable progress in terms of curriculum and infrastructure. Curriculum in Malaysia has been diversifying and updated to always meet the current needs of our country. Similarly, the facilities provided. More and more schools built and equipped with modern information technology, computer and so on. However, despite the progress and the facility is still inadequate to the created and applied without bias, particularly for social science subjects such as visual art. Facilities and new and different approaches have been realized as collaboration between the school and the gallery or museum to raise the interest and better understanding in the learning of the subject Visual Arts Education. Museum Magnet School Program is a project-based academic program conducted in partnership with museums and schools. The program includes research, writing, creation of objects, the creation of exhibitions, and public speaking.It emphasizes the critical investigation and analysis in the learning process-oriented environment and fully interactive disciplines and expanding beyond the walls of the museum classroom, community, and world. Programs like this will expose students to a learning environment that is different from usual because students can understand what they are learning faster once the teaching and learning process more effective. This is because students can see and feel their own examples of historical material or artwork in reality.
  2. 2. 2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM (identify the ‘gap’ which you plan to investigate with the intention to add new knowledge to the existing body of knowledge) This study will investigate the influence of a museum or gallery in the process of teaching and learning in schools for Visual Art Education subject. .

LITERATURE REVIEW (summarize relevant theories and previous research) Museum education is a learning process in a way to see the exhibits, touch the artifacts on display and feel the strength, hear the explanations given about the collection of artifacts on display, holds a collection of materials that are shown (experience) through compilation or collection of artifacts on display at a museum (Condit: 1976).Educational activities at the museum today has found the work by Kenneth Hudson (1976). He summarizes the current development of the museum can be developed to introduce the museum through education around the world to ensure they get the right information and unfounded. Museum education will ensure the preservation of cultural identity to continue to be appreciated by the community. Museum is no longer a home store or agent for keeping the artefacts.
  3. 3. 3 There is a manifest proof of the matters relating to education as noted by George Brown Goode (1897) at the end of the 19th century. He suggested that the museum put a label on each of the display so that the visitors can find out what is seen by them as well as considering the collection or display material. Museum became a powerful institution as a means of education. Education is the theme of the museum is constantly repeated during the last century not only in literature museum but involve international museum conferences (International Council of Museums: 1972). Olofsson (1979) explains in some countries, tourist guide and several programs have been conducted for the purpose of education in a museum that can only be used by a small number of students and student groups. A fact that will set the truth through research done by the researchers, who carried out the exhibition and science activities related artifacts. This would be beneficial to better understanding of the past that have occurred (Stone & Molyneaux: 1994). The purpose of the museum is to provide education and ensure that any information supplied about a fact or truth is the truth. A fact that will set the truth through research done by the researchers, who carried out the exhibition and science activities related artifacts. This would be beneficial to better understanding of the past that have occurred (Stone & Molyneaux: 1994). According to Olofsson (1979), the purpose of the museum education research is to determine the conditions of a flow of information is on the right, give the professional the opportunity to see the collections assembled, visitors to view material- exhibits can exchange ideas, their sesame suggestions and support colleagues who are in the museum because in their educational priorities of the manifest is still at a low level to strengthen and foster cultural appreciation through education and heritage among Malaysians.
