The museum purpose




Why visit a museum? They dip into our tax funds, incur cost to us to use them and take time out of our day to visit. Yet, museums offer countless benefits and improve our lives.
Museums educate. They teach us about who we are and where we came from. They teach us about areas of the world we know little about, geographically, technologically, spatially and socially. Museums stimulate the economy. They can provide jobs and activities for the community. Activities provide more social interaction, education and create a well-rounded community. Museums save. They collect, archive, store and preserve items from the past and present to help pieces of the past survive for future generations. Often times these items are available to view or learn from with advanced notice. Stimulating our brains with information of this world is a privilege and right we all enjoy. Knowledge is power, and what better super power to have than knowing and understanding there is so much more out there, the world is such a fabulous place. Enjoy the museums.
