Ideas to prepare before you go to a museum
Before going to the place, find out if the museum is predominantly old, modern or contemporary history. This way you will already have an idea about the trend of the place and may decide in advance whether to go or not. Take note of what was happening during the years in which the works were made, because art reflects society, economy and politics of the moment.

If you just want to impress, go to the museum and joining to it. Members often have discounts and are informed about the different parts that are exposed there. Come on, not that bad, if you really want to delve into the world this tool will be very good.

Go to the museum shop. Almost everyone has a place to sell books and various souvenirs containing works that the Museum more prides itself on. Come and check out the postcards they sell and buy the most representative. With these in hand, you will know which works should review. If you do not get these parts, do not worry, ask the guards, caretakers or managers; do not be afraid because hundreds of people are even more lost than you.

When standing in front of the museum piece that is pictured in its post, stay a few minutes to look great all the details that are not seen in small. Read the author’s name and try to find if there’s more of that artist in place. Also you can see what is on the side of what you’re reviewing; you may come across something you like.

Why spend hours in the museum, once you have seen the parts considered most relevant store can go home. If then you feel like, you can come back for more. The good part is that these places have permanent collections, but also others that rotate in different periods.
