IMPORTANCE OF MUSEUMS - PART 2


4. Museums help us to learn from the past

First and foremost, museums and galleries provide an insight into the history of humankind. And while no museum can claim to provide a complete picture, the lessons we can learn from past events, wonders and tragedies are priceless. This is especially true in times of turmoil. Today, it’s impossible to ignore the escalating tensions between nations, between political parties and between different cultural groups. Instead of finding common ground it seems that issues of class, race, gender and environmentalism are becoming ever more polarised.

 

5. They Display Alternative Perspectives on History
Many mainstream history courses and books are biased, focusing on the perspective of the dominant culture and ignoring the thousands of minority cultures with fascinating history to be told. Museums display histories, timelines, and perspectives you may have never heard before, potentially altering the mind-sets of people who have simply never been educated outside the mainstream culture. This differing perspective is something any well-informed person should have. When viewpoints are only taken from one’s own culture, they find themselves severely limited.

 

6. Tourism and the Local Economy

Museums are also a significant factor in attracting tourists to an area and can therefore be instrumental in helping the local economy in terms of supplying a passing trade as well as offering local people employment. Government figures suggested that in 2004, 85% of foreign visitors listed the U.K’s rich heritage and array of museums and galleries as a major factor in their decision to visit this country.
