Museums collect artifacts for the education and enjoyment of the public. Each artifact has it’s own story to tell, and research yields new discoveries about their secrets.
Each museum tries to reflect the diversity of the experiences in it’s artifact collection. All artifacts provide a connection to the past.
Some museums collect for artistic value or cultural influence. Others collect items that tell historical stories and provide historical context. Also museums collect items such as photographs, books or manuscripts to preserve the past and educate others through programs, displays and research.
