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.
