Museums hold the secrets of the past and they are reflections of our culture today. From the art a society creates to a snapshot of history, museums are invaluable tools for learning about a culture and its evolution.
There are some incredible museums all over the world that are works of art unto themselves. The Met in New York City and the Louvre in France are as famous for the buildings themselves as they are for the art that they hold.
Before you dismiss your local museum as boring I would invite you to take a tour and see all the things that it has to offer. The best way to predict our future is to study the past.
