Why Go to an Art Museum Today Day is popular

On this day, everyone can feel like tourists in their own city, because you will agree that few of us go to the museum in the city where we live. Going to a museum is a great way to relax and have fun at the same time. The story told by the guide will take you to another world, to another era – this is a unique practice.

Museums allow us to learn, but not obsessively, but in a playful way, with pleasure.
