Traveling is a major activity during summer season in European countries and other developed countries. After a long year of work many people like to spend their vacation in another country or a city. The main purpose of the travel is to enjoy themselves. But many people visit museums when they travel to new places. Why do you think people visit museums? I think they want to spend their time and money in a profitable way. By visiting museums people can gain knowledge.
First of all, one reason to visit museums during their travel is learn and gain knowledge about the place or a country. There are several types of museums such as science, art, history and combination of all areas. Mainly in science museums they exhibit that explain the advancement of technology past to present and new inventions etc. The art museums show about architecture development of the country and arts. The country`s history explains in historical museums. I have seen a museum called "Vase museum" when I visited to Sweden. In there they exhibits the ship, which was sank years ago, and how they take that off from the sea. This tells you a story that is happen many years ago and their advance knowledge. Likewise you can learn about the country`s history, customs, food habits, living patterns, and climate etc. Therefore people who visiting a museum can not only enjoy themselves but also learn lot of new things that they don`t know.

You can easily do this inside the museums because every museum has a shopping outlet. People can buy souvenirs, picture post cards, wall hangings etc. This will save your time and money.
In sum, I can say people visit museums to enjoy themselves and gain knowledge. This is very good investment of traveling. Also people can buy souvenirs to remember the place.
