Museums are a great place to spend some time or even the whole day. A museum for children can provide tons of fun for the whole family, and even adults can find interesting things to interact with. There are many different types of museums, from history to art to play, but they all serve an important purpose. What is that purpose and why do museums exist in the first place? In this video, you will learn answers to these questions.
Museums have been around for 2,000 years, a much longer time than most people might think. In ancient Greece, they served as a place for academics to practice their study and work. The video will take you through the evolution of museums over time so you can see how they started and how they changed over time into how we know them today. In the past, they were used as ways to show off political or societal status. It wasn’t until more recently until they became more of a public establishment, and are meant to be a place of learning.
