museums, historical societies, zoos, botanical  gardens,  aquariums  and
cultural  arts  institutions in the United States, and that these organ-

  The legislature finds and declares that museums, historical societies,
zoos,  botanical  gardens,  aquariums  and  cultural  arts  institutions
attract millions of visitors each year  and  provide  vitally  important
instructional  services  to  the  schoolchildren of this state, and that
children, in grades pre-kindergarten through twelve and adults  enrolled

such services.
  The legislature finds that over 1,300 museums,  historical  societies,
zoos,  botanical  gardens,  aquariums  and cultural arts institutions in
this state now provide instruction to over  six  million  children,  and
that these institutions now receive no direct state support to initiate,
expand  and  enhance these educational services through access to museum
collections, scholarship and virtual learning.
