SACRAMENTO, CA – Assemblymember Ian Calderon introduced Assembly Concurrent Resolution 115, a measure that designates May 2014 as California Museum Month.
“California museums play an essential role in our state,” stated Assemblymember Ian Calderon. “They are not only the key drivers of tourism, but also an excellent source of educational programs that enhance a student’s learning experience.”
California museums provide access to educational opportunities, hands-on learning experiences, information and cultural heritage that define us as a state. These institutions serve residents and attract millions of tourists annually and foster an appreciation of history, science, and the arts.
ACR 115 proclaims May 2014 as California Museum Month, inviting all museums, museum service organizations, California residents, and local governments to use this milestone to recognize and celebrate the role that museums play as educational institutions.
