Many people visit museums when they travel to new places. Why do you think people visit museums? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

Traveling is more than just taking a break from the hassle of daily life. It is an opportunity to learn more about the people you meet and the places you travel to. An experience unlike any other, traveling piques your curiosity and encourages you to take in every aspect of the surrounding. Many travelers prefer to expand their knowledge spectrum by visiting museums. The reason why people do so is described in the following paragraphs. To begin with, museums are a vast hub of information that always leave you craving for more, in terms of knowledge when you exit them. They are the center that offers you a broad insight into the history of the particular place. My own personal experience is a great example of this. I remember, on my way to our village to meet my grandparents, I saw a roadside past museum. That museum was built in the 1980s. However, the museum was restored in the late 2000s after it was flooded in the 90s. Learning this, I was curious to find what the museum held. I found the museum was home to some of the tools, jewelry and utensils used by the early civilization. In terms of utensils, large wooden spoons,out and metal cooking pots were displayed. Beneath the display, a small background history of these items was mentioned. According to the description, these utensils were common among the people of civilization and were used for several years. The jewelry on display was made out of stones with hand-painted flower patterns and intricate designs that would enhance the wearer's features. The materials on display offered an insight into the people's lives of early civilization. Furthermore, visit to museums also give you an opportunity to tap into your creativity and interest. As a result,people become curious and in some way want to contribute to the discovery of history. For instance, visiting a dinosaur museum in Gatlinburg, Tennessee piqued my interest in unraveling the mystery of the dinosaur world. The findings from the early excavations motivated me to pursue the field of archeology and learn more about the extinct life forms. Museums are not only the source of traveling back in time, they are a platform for people to become a part of the history in one way or the other. In conclusion, traveling is a wholesome experience that transforms not only a person's life but their way of thinking. In particular, people visiting museums learn more about the history and the events that shaped the nations and the world. Museums are a portal to an explored territory that leaves every visitor begging for more.
