Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Visiting museums is the best way to learn about a country. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer

There are plenty of ways to learn about a country.Some people believe that visiting museumes is the best way to learn about a country. However,in my opinion, there are other ways to learn about a country and visiting museumes is not the best way. I feel this way for two reasons which I will explore in what follows. To begin with, visiting museumes is not interesting for everyone; In other words, some people especially kids can get bored by visiting museumes and they miss the chance of learning about a new country.My personal experience is a great example of this; a couple of years ago, my family and I traveled to Turkey, my brother was seven years old at that time and after visiting a museum only for an hour, he got bored and made us leave the museum sooner. We could have learned many things about Turkey if we chose another way to learn about it like going the cinema or theater. Moreover, visiting museumes can provide information about a country's past and we should get information about its present too. To state it more clearly, by visiting museumes, we can see how people got dressed hundred years ago and in order to know about that country's fashion ,we should go and visit shopping centers or know about people's diet, we should eat their native foods in restaurants. Also, people can get information about a country by watching documentaries or following people who live abroad . For instance, my mother has lots of knowledge about different countries without visiting them only because of documentaries that she has watched. To conclude, visiting museumes is not the best way to learn about a country. This is because visiting museumes is boring compared to other ways to learn about a country. Also, visiting museumes only provide information about the past of that country. Hence, I recommend people try other ways in addition to visiting museumes, such as, watching documentaries, finding a friend in another country, etc.
