My Throwback Thursday post and one of my favorite entries about museums. Enjoy reading!
There are times when children are required to go on a field trip. For most kids, a field trip might mean something fun to do that is somewhat related to school. However, there are times when kids do not like it when they visit museums because they tend to get bored.
This is the reason why museums are starting to put interesting things for kids as well. The tendency is when they become interested in something; they will also start looking around. They will eventually have better understanding and knowledge about the things that can be seen inside the museum.
Here are other positive effects of visiting the museum:
Children will gain more knowledge about the history of their country.
Children will learn more about the culture of the society that they live in.
It will give children the chance to appreciate the things that they have right now and at the same time, appreciate the things that were available in the past.
It will give children a break from the highly technological surroundings that children are exposed to on a daily basis at present time.
With all of these benefits, there are enough reasons why children should visit museums.
Those diamond-looking items are real sugars shaped into diamond by young artist Nikki Luna. They are not brad sugars, but ordinary sugar like the ones found in the kitchen. So what does the sugar diamonds imply as part of her exhibit at the Lopez Museum? Sugar as it is, is an important commodity to both landlords and farmers in areas where she took the inspiration to set up the Azucacera. She used this as part of the series of installation concept art to convey social issues such as displacement of families due to land grabbing and mining.
