Art Gallery Inside

The government spends about £220 million a year supporting museums and galleries in the UK, and a similar amount subsiding the visual and performing arts. This is a huge sum to spend on minority interests, and the money would be better spent on more important things. It should be up to the people who enjoy cultural attractions to pay for them.
What are your views? (Write minimum 250 Words)

I feel government must spend required amount of money on preservation and upkeep of Museums and Galleries. I disagree to the statement that the said huge sum is spent on minority interests.
In this essay we shall look at the reasons justifying this view point.

A museum is an institution that cares for a collection of artefacts and other objects of scientific, artistic, cultural, or historical importance and makes them available for public viewing through exhibits that may be permanent or temporary. Most large museums are located in major cities throughout the world and some more exist in smaller cities, towns and even the countryside.

Secondly, history is the study of the past, focused on human activity and leading up to the present day. More precisely, history is the continuous, systematic narration of past events with extensive research work into it. The Museums and Galleries tell us about the past and History and are the most important and valid source for the study and research work on the subject of history for historians; those who study it as a profession.

Museums and Galleries attract tourists from various countries and thereby importance of that place increases. It also earns and boosts the revenue to the government through department of tourism this strengthens economy of the nation.

It has been very validly explained in a quotation by David C. McCullough; that “History is a guide to navigation in perilous times. History is who we are and why we are the way we are”.

In nutshell the Governments must spend necessary funds to preserve Museums and Galleries in the best possible manner.
