The present paper aims to analyse the use of Digital Storytelling (DST) methodology in museum education context for the development of Critical Thinking (CT) skills within secondary school pupils. Starting from a brief literature review about CT promotion and cultural heritage education, an overview of active learning methodologies used in museum education for CT development is introduced. Moreover, the paper presents the first data obtained from a quasi-experiment carried out at the Galleria Lapidaria in the Capitolini Museums in Rome, which is focused on the use of DST for the promotion of CT skills for secondary school pupils within an integrated formal and informal education path.
