Museums are a place that serves as an alternative source of information. As time advances, society desensitizes the privilege of having access to such a distinctive reference; threatening the prevalence of museums. In order for a museum to successfully fulfill its purpose, a curator must consider the authenticity, educational value, and relevance of an exhibit.
It is called the Museum of Civilization, and it is located inside an airport outside Severn City. His museum later became famous in the world after the collapse. Some characters think that it is just a rumor but the museum exists in real life. “‘I thought the Museum of Civilization was a rumor,’ August said” (124). The museum was mentioned several times by different characters and people in year fifteen would go there to look at the past after their long days of work. It became famous, but some people wouldn’t go there because the Prophet was from the museum. Clark created the museum when he was thinking of his boyfriend, Robert, while looking out at a line of planes in the Skymiles Lounge of the airport. “If Robert were here--Christ, if only--if Robert were here, he’d probably fill the shelves with artifacts and start an impromptu museum” (254). He puts things that are no longer useful from the old world into shelves that had glass display cases. At first, he just laid the objects side by side under the glass. He didn’t tell anyone about the museum but someone added an iPhone, heels, and a snow globe there next to the objects he set up. That is the beginning of the Museum of Civilization. Over time, he would spend a lot of time in this museum of his and show people around answering questions that they had about certain artifacts. He loves his museum and would dust his beloved objects. He wants to remember what the world was like and what they had before flu

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum showcases Mrs. Gardner 's collection to the public in greater Boston area. Each room functions as a pilgrimage, as one travels through various countries and time periods ending at the chapel and subsequently the Gothic room. In this paper, I will examine the Gothic room 's theme in relation to the placement of its objects. I will also evaluate the room 's strengths and challenges in serving the public, and how the practices employed in this room fit into the context of accessibility for the entire museum.
When the New World was discovered it was nothing Europe had ever anticipated. Sir Robert Heath was given a grant by King Charles I to settle in an area which is today the Carolinas. Sir Robert heath never did accomplish this goal. He lost the grant from king Charles I due to the fact that he never succeeded. Soon King Charles II sent eight lord proprietors to settle where Robert Heath had failed. Eventually, these men did set up a colony. They called it Charles Town in honor of King Charles II. This colony wasn’t handed to them on a silver platter, though. They had to suffer hardships such as new never before seen terrain, vicious wildlife, and an unknown disease that would wipe out hundreds. Only the skilled and lucky survived in Charles Town

I choose the Crystal River State Archaeological State Park in Crystal River , Florida. It is more commonly know as the Indian Burial Mounds. The park itself is in a beautiful location , overlooking the Crystal River on one side and grassy plains on the other side. There is recreational activities in the park as well as the museum. Some of the activities are salt and freshwater fishing , picnicking , bird watching and nature walks. The museum itself features a video about the ancient tribe that once lived there and a collection of artifacts. A few of the artifacts are arrowheads , pottery , jewelry , stone and bone tools. The main attraction of the interior museum is a diorama of a scale model of the site when the Indians lived there .
Nearly 45 years have passed since the Vietnam War, but its effects still echo in the modern day. Most the marks of the darkest time of the country are gone, yet some of them still exist in the War Remnants Museum.

I am sending you this letter to present you with my proposal for a new museum, that I believe will be revolutionary. It will be called the Vice Cherokee Museum. The Cherokee culture is fascinating and very vast, but unfortunately not well represented. I think our community will greatly benefit from gaining knowledge of whom the Cherokees are and what their people have been through. There is a great ignorance when it comes to the knowledge of Cherokee culture and this museum will be built in hopes of improving this problem. The museum will be fresh, new, and have modern technology, while still preserving the original integrity of the artifacts. It will not only present the history of the Cherokee people, but take the audience on a journey.
Charleston’s International African American Museum will soon offer a unique experience to its visitors. Most of the museums people visit allow them to learn and familiarize themselves with the history, culture, arts, and legacy of African American people. However, although you can experience all of that too, Charleston provides an added bonus.
In 1804, the first museum opened in New York City, and it transformed society and culture in a dramatic way. Over the next 200 years, New York City became home to hundreds of cultural institutions and historic sites. Residents and visitors alike experienced this cultural uproar in a positive way. New York City became a bustling cultural center expanding the intellectual horizons of thousands of people. The New York Historical Society, The National Academy Museum, and The Brooklyn Historical Society paved the way for future art and cultural organizations and museums to flourish within the five boroughs.
In this article, Dorothy Lippert, a Native American, covers the complex dynamic between Native Americans and museum collections, more specifically the archeologists that recover and archive the so called artifacts. This complex relationship between the artifacts, with the scientific importance and ability to educate, and the cultural importance of the artifacts to native peoples is one that is forever changing. Curators are in charge of putting together exhibits, but as Mrs. Lippert examines, the archaeologists that collect and find these artifacts have a unique relationship with these items. This relationship is unique because once archaeologists have control of an item, they decide what the item will be called, how they will classify the
