What are the purposes of places such as museums and how should they be funded?
Nowhere in the world has the issue of museum’s progress been so much debated as in our society. Nowadays, more and more museums have to face the serious economic problem. Therefore, many people doubt museum’s existent signification. In this essay we will discuss the existent signification of museum and the solutions, such as buying by government and supporting by society
Firstly, museum is considered the historical symbol that it exhibits traditional culture of a nation. Nations of difference have different culture and history. The museum is the best way to let the younger generation savvy their ancestor’s history and let visitors and foreigners know varied culture and tradition.
Secondly, museum could save plenty of cultural relics that they are not destroyed and lost. The equipments of museum could perfectly save all kinds of displays.
As a result of the future of museum, the outlook is somewhat grim. People already realize this problem exists and are trying to solve it.
For one solution, the government ought to buy all museums. If museum belong to government, it will means main economic problem of museum is solved.
The second solution is that society ought to donate lots of money to maintain development of museum. The museum protects our history and culture, so we have obligation to support progress of museum.
The important thing is to protect current museums before it’s too late. Otherwise we will lose them.
Museums illuminate the culture, history and arts of the world. Every country
and government spare no effort or money to enrich the collection of museum
s to cater for different tastes or needs of people, for the benefit of the present and future generations.There are bounteous museums all over the world.
The British Museum, which is maybe the largest one in the world, provides
visitors with all-round knowledge about the world culture and arts. The visitors to the museum are all overwhelmed by the magnificence of the culture
and history of mankind. If one wants to know about the development of
human science and industry, he can have a tour to The Museum of Science
and Industry located in Chicago, the United States,where a detailed scientific
progress is presented vividly. You cannot miss every achievement human
beings have made in history and you are sure to be shocked by the civilization our forefathers created. If one wants to have a browse of the important
events in the past, American Museum of Photography is the best choice. It a
bounds in precious historical pictures and gives visitors unforgettable memory.
Apart from the state-owned museums, there are also innumerable private
museums whose purpose is to exhibit their cherished collection and popularize knowledge.
With a view to giving people updated information and rendering them a more detailed overview, many countries invest a great deal of money in the foundation of museums, because museums disseminate human knowledge and
culture, which are more significant for the development of the young generation. Besides, entrepreneurs and individuals should also lay a fund for the
improvement and rebuild of museums.The prosperity of human culture is not
only the responsibility of the government, but also the responsibility of ever
y individual and organization. (295 words)
It is almost impossible to talk of human civilization without mentioning the significant roles played by some places, such as museums, art gallery and so on. From London to Paris, from Beijing to New York, museums attract millions of visitors from all over the world annually.
Museum is where people go to get their education and entertainment. Nowadays, more and more parents are energetic for taking their children to visit history museums or art museums in weekend, because they find the collections and antiques displayed in museums can stimulate their children’s curiosity and enlarge their scope. Besides, recent years, some entertainment facilities were equipped in many China’s museums. For example, in Beijing Aviation Museum, visitors have chance to steer glider under the guide of pilots. Obvious, museums have become vital parts of our lives.
The second main purpose of museums is related to the protection of culture. As we know, a lot of cultural relics, literature and antiques are exhibited in various museums ranging from history museum to technical museum, from militaries museum to sea museum. Here, visitors will not miss any achievement our ancestors have made and they will be shocked by human civilization. We cannot find better places than museums to protect those symbols of human history and culture.
However, partly because of limited fund from governments, partly because of inefficient management, more and more museums have to face severe financial problems. It is commonly believed that our governments should burden more responsibilities and invest a great deal of money on museums. Besides, the managers of museums also should solve those troubles by themselves, such as improving management efficiency, increasing the price of tickets and selling souvenirs.
In summary, as the symbol of human civilization, museums take up very significant positions in our lives. There are still many troubles need to be solved, however, I do believe that, as time passes, people will come to realize the value of museums eventually.
