Museum Abbreviations

From the Latin musēum , a museum is a place where collections of objects of artistic, cultural, scientific, historical, etc. They are usually managed by non-profit institutions that seek to disseminate human knowledge.

There are, however, private for-profit museums. In any case , museums are dedicated to research, conservation and exhibition of collections that have cultural value .

In the past, these types of collections were kept in temples and were only displayed on special occasions. There were also private collections in the hands of the aristocracy, who displayed them in their gardens or residences to be appreciated by their visitors.

Museums were, in Ancient Greece, times of the muses (these muses were deities who protected the arts such as poetry, comedy, music, dance, among others). And in these temples, offerings were left for these deities, offerings that, for the most part, were precious goods or even exotic objects. And such goods ended up being exposed to the public, upon payment of a small sum.
It is by visiting a museum that people can learn more about the culture and history of a particular country, state or city. Since in these places are objects from different eras.

Thus, it is possible to understand how elements evolved to what we have today (as is the case with paper) or even to know how our ancestors lived.

Around the world, in each country there are museums and, also, they can vary and even receive specific names, according to the collection that is exposed and preserved there.

There are different types of museums, such as: historical museums, art museums, technological museums, science museums, ecological museums (also known as “eco-museums”), among many others.

The existence of museums was due to the human being’s habit of keeping objects that are of value to them. And this habit has existed since ancient times, with human beings attributing material, emotional or even cultural value to objects and, with that, wanting to preserve these objects.

The museum, as we know it today, emerged in the Renaissance. These entities have a team of professionals, made up of curators, restorers, analysts and security guards, among others.

In addition to having a physical and fixed space for their installations, some museums hold traveling exhibitions: in this way, they take their collections to different parts of the world and increase their audience.

Security plays a very important role in museums, given the value of the works they keep inside. Museums have closed-circuit television, alarms of different types and display cases to protect objects.

Some of the biggest museums in the world are located in Europe, such as the Louvre Museum in Paris, France, and the British Museum in London, England.

Nowadays, any museum that holds exhibitions through digital means is known as a virtual museum. In this way, a web page, a CD -ROM or a DVD can store digitized works so that they can be enjoyed by society.
