Visit a museum

What museum would you like to visit? Are you interested in natural science, contemporary art, Shakespeare or history?

This is the time to look for museums that appeal to you.

Looking in the dictionary, a museum is: "A building, place, or institution devoted to the acquisition, conservation, study, exhibition and educational interpretation of objects having scientific, historical or artistic value".
