Importance of Museums

Museums are very important spaces within the infrastructure of any country and from a social point of view. Whether public or private, for profit or without it, the purpose of museums is to preserve, investigate, communicate, expose or exhibit all kinds of collections. Museums can accumulate all kinds of objects, adventures, sculptures, etc. Museums collect a very important part of knowledge, history , art, culture …, whether from the country itself or from other parts of the world, but always under a thematic, artistic, scientific coherence, etc.

The human being has always had the need to express themselves in many ways and create new objects, create new mechanisms, tools, artistic expressions varied and museums, when they are born as such, have the need to preserve them and the same time show them Visitors so that they know not only their functionality or what they would like to express with them, but also so that the people who visit them are aware of the historical importance of all this creation and, at the same time, also of how the human being has He has been creating and improving everything around him, be it his physical reality or his creative and artistic reality.

The problem with museums is that, most of the time, they expose a tiny part of everything they can store, since their physical space, unless it can be increased, is usually never enough to be able to show everything. the accumulated material. The other problem that exists is that it would be impossible to show them all since, in most cases, it would be necessary to enable quite a few and different spaces for how much and varied what is expected, which would imply a large economic investment , not only for the exhibition of the same, but also, on many occasions, for the restoration of many of them and the maintenance of warehouses, quarantine rooms, restaurants, etc.

Still, museums are essential to preserve human knowledge at all levels. Without it, it would be impossible to understand how we have reached the current technological, artistic and cultural level, as well as the development of the human being from the physical point of view. When a country deals with and is concerned with having and maintaining these spaces, we speak of a nation that cares about knowledge, that cares about the culture of its inhabitants and, above all, is interested in knowing its past, its present and as all this cultural baggage influences the future.
