The problem of this thesis arose out of two questions, firstly, "What are New Zealand museums and art galleries contributing to education?" and secondly, "Are they effective as educational institutions?" To answer both questions the task was to find out what these institutions are in fact doing in the field of education. Investigations based on a survey of this kind were, as far as New Zealand is concerned, virtually non-existent, but where possible the problem was related to the limited literature available. Critical comments on the merits or limitations of this scant literature is contained in the annotated bibliography.
