The museum is a place where antique things and art are preserved for the public to be seen, a place where rare things of past and present are kept, a place where you can see a collection of rare things and things of historical interest. Those who want to have a look into the past visit the museum. I was planning to visit this museum long before this assignment but I never had the chance to fulfil it. Last Sunday I took my family and visited the American History Museum, and the Aerospace Museum in Washington D C. Each Museum is divided into various sections. Each section has different exhibits. I spent great time in the History Museum as it pertains to the course I’m taking, but my two kids loved the Aerospace Museum.
The museum is in a big building which consists of many big halls. It is managed by all officers and tour guides. To visit the museum is an education in itself and for this reason it is visited by thousands of people every day. Travelers from other states and even foreign countries also make it a point to visit it because it enables them to peek into history and human progress.
During the course of history, art has proven to be an important culture of humanity. Not only does art teaches the history of mankind but it passes on the emotions and ideas that cannot be written or verbal expressed. As history takes its course and civilization evolves, we can observe the changes and evolution. The Museum has on display a variety of artifacts from several different time periods allowing us to see and imagine how life was hundreds of years ago. The museum itself is mainly divided into four buildings, each displaying different types of artifacts. Aside from these pavilions, the museum itself is an architectural artifact as well, with its beautiful buildings. This museum is unique from the moment you arrive there, the entrance, the lighting, and the…...

A Trip to the Bible Museum

...A TRIP TO THE BIBLE MUSEUM Czarina Ann Baptisma, Jerson Cristobal, Angelica Enriquez, Maria Jennylyn Sendito, Lejun Christian Osorio We were pleased to see that the Bible Museum here in the Philippines on its feature all owned. With the theme, How the Bible Came to the Philippines, we were stunned of the interconnection of knowing the Bible more in such a way that we took the correlation of it to the Philippine history. In fact, the tour is different, a religiously inspiring one. This museum can be found on the second floor of the nine-story Philippine Bible Society on United Nations Ave. The museum is an organization whose mission is to promote the reading of the Holy Bible. It translates, prints, and distributes the Holy Scriptures. At around 3 o’clock in the afternoon last Wednesday, December 5, 2012, we went to the Philippine Bible Society on United Nations Ave. While waiting for the whole class to be complete, we stayed at the first floor of the nine-story building. The first floor houses a bookstore where one can buy Bibles and other religious memorabilia including mugs, key chains, t-shirts, and many more. At around 3:15, Kuya JM, our tour guide, led us to the second floor of the building, where the Bible Museum is located. Before getting inside the museum, he told us that we are not allowed to take pictures inside the museum unless told so. There were a total of 15 modules. The first three was about the time when God spoke to Abraham to when God revealed the...

...Dianne Ventura Professor Dunn Hum: 1025 John and Mable Ringling Museum As we drove up to the entrance of the John and Mable Ringling Museum, I was taken back for a moment. How could I have lived here in Tampa for seventeen years and never visit this place? I walked in and saw the grounds; this place was huge, well kept and full of history. My first stop was a stroll through Marble rose garden, it was beautiful , over one thousand-two hundred roses are planted in the garden the beautiful marble sculptures was placed in the right order, not overpowering the garden but just enough to accent the landscape. The stroll quiet relaxing, the cool air flowing through the trees, the sweet smell of morning dew on rose petal was the perfect way to begin the day. As my stroll ended I was told that the large tree surrounding the ground was much smaller, giving Mable a clear view of her garden from every room in her mansion. My next stop was the Museum of Art, what a beautiful exhibit. This was actually my favorite place in the entire museum. The first thing that captured my eye, was the twenty feet DAVID towing over the garden. Even though it was not the original, it was radiant. His poise and grace just over took the outdoor quarter. Viewing a sculpture in a text book and actually touching and seeing it in person is amazing. Remembering what I was taught in class; I started reviewing him carefully. Searching for all the characteristics was amazing. I was enjoying this...

Fishing Trip

...Dazmon Williams ENG 111 2-1-14 Final Draft Sunday's Fishing Trip Sunday evening after church about 6:00 at Lake Gaston. The sun was beginning to go down. I was with Mr. Williams and his wife Brenda, his son Willie’s and wife Beverly and their precious little baby boy. My brother George was with us also. Mr. Williams is a longtime deacon at my church I have much respect for him. I call him my godfather due to the time he spends with me and gives me some good advice when I need. I was ready to help get the boat in the water; he said earlier he would let me drive the boat some. That made me so happy, but I tried to hide it. Everyone else didn't seem very excited about the trip. I tried to get my brother excited about it. I asked him why you’re not excited. He said "I just want to fish" with the sound of depression in his voice. I asked him "why are you acting like this?" He didn't say a word, he just looked away. After all fishing is his favorite hobby, so that really puzzled me. I told him let's embrace this blessing that Mr. Williams let us go with them fishing, let's make this trip interesting. We all got ready to unload the boat in the water. Mr. Williams told me what to do and how to do it, since this was my first time unloading a boat. Little did I know that it would take five people? Mrs. Brenda drove the truck, backing the boat and the trailer up in the water, Mr. Williams and Junior was unfastening the boat from the trailer. My brother and I had to hold...

...Discussion – Museum Acquisition and Art Theft Part 1: Museum Acquisitions around the United States are very much similar if not the same. Museums make their unique contribution to the public by collecting, preserving and interpreting the things of this world. Per the American Alliance of Museums, “Museums in the United States are grounded in the tradition of public service. They are organized as public trusts, holding their collections and information as a benefit for those they were established to serve. Members of their governing authority, employees and volunteers are committed to the interests of these beneficiaries. The law provides the basic framework for museum operations. As nonprofit institutions, museums comply with applicable local, state, and federal laws and international conventions, as well as with the specific legal standards governing trust responsibilities. This Code of Ethics for Museums takes that compliance as given. But legal standards are a minimum. Museums and those responsible for them must do more than avoid legal liability, they must take affirmative steps to maintain their integrity so as to warrant public confidence. They must act not only legally but also ethically. This Code of Ethics for Museums, therefore, outlines ethical standards that frequently exceed legal minimums.” What is the procedure(s) for the acquisition of artifacts by and for museums today? Just to compare two of many The Museum of Fine Arts Boston and The Metropolitan...

We ponder on what the Oregon coast and the Wallowa Mountains offered in actives, accommodations, and weather in late March. We were down to trip to the Wallowa Mountains and the Oregon coast.

Field Trip

...Cal State San Marcos Essay On Tuesday, September 29, myself and a large group of AVID students went to San Marcos for a tour. The tour we went on was a college tour of Cal State San Marcos. I actually found it very intriguing. The bus ride was not too bad for I slept through most of it. When I got off the bus, I immediately went to find my friend, Corbin Loyaa. After I found Corbin, we went Craven Hall which was the first building at Cal State San Marcos programmed to house all of the administrative functions for the whole campus. Craven Hall is, basically, the first place you will see after you climb the first set of stairs. Craven Hall was named after one of it’s founders. His name was Senator William Craven. After we all met up at Craven Hall, we got into groups and began our tour. We first went around the store and bookstore. After that, we went to the student lounge. We also went to the food court. After that we went to the Founders’ Seal. To conclude our tour,we visited the Kellogg Library. I loved the library. That thing was huge. It was five stories tall if you include the dungeon. The dungeon is the bottom floor that happens to be underground. After the tour was over, they let us walk around the campus a little bit. The first thing I did was go get food. After that I just explored the campus. Overall, it was a great trip, and I had a lot of fun....

...I am keen on visiting interesting places when I get vacations. On car journey I would like to talk about today was my visit to Mount WUYI which is located in Fujian province. Last winter vacation, my family and I decided to go to Hainan. Unfortunately, we were informed that Hainan was hit from typhoon 2 days before our departure. As the city repaired damaged, there were still powerful following storms threatening this region. Out of a choice, we canceled our trip. However, it was not often the case that my family and I could get time together to have a holiday trip. In order to fully enjoy our vacation as we planned, we changed our destination to WUYI city. Due to the sudden change, we failed to buy train tickets and had to drive there on our own. It turned out that visiting places like Mount WUYI is perfect for self-driving. It was estimated as a 3-hour driving so we rented a SUV and switched drivers on the way. Each of us were responsible for a part of the highway, and whenever we saw something fascinating, we just pulled over the car to have a closer look at it. I guess those are the merits of renting a car and going on a trip with family. Mount WUYI, a very popular scenic area in China is famous for the natural conservation of numerous ancient plant species and wildlife. The popular activities there include hiking and drifting. The first day we rode a raft down the streams. The raft we took was tied by bamboo, and there were two men using long poles to steer the...

Museum

...It is basically correct to say that, in the mind of the public, the MMA has no image. There is nothing about this [building] that says, “I’m a museum,” or “Come in.” There are a lot of people that are not interested in high culture and think this is a drive-in bank or an office building. Most art museums in America have a problem with image. One of the things that makes me mad is that people think there is something wrong with the museum. The MMA is one of the most public in the country, and more heavily dependent on the mem- bership contribution than any other [museum]. Like most, it is underendowed and underfunded from reliable public funds. In fact, the American Association of Museums reports that only about 60 percent of America’s 2000-plus art museums have enough income from their endowment to cover their operating costs. Nevertheless, this institu- tion has chosen to be public, with free access, and this is very noble. It is wonderful that the museum has decided not to belong to an agglomeration of very rich people. This museum has more character than it thinks it has. It has the best balanced collection between Western and non-Western art of any museum in the country. We have not chosen to sell or promote the unique aspects of this collection or the museum’s emphasis on historical context.What we have are the makings of an institu- tion that is very different from other museums, and we ought to be able to make that into an advantage rather than apologize for it....

... who happened to be a tour guide, we chatted for few minutes then she suggested and offered us a quick tour, we followed her. Coincidently we stopped at the Civil Rights Activists section where you can take part in a training session based on an actual 1960s manual and prepare for your first sit-in protest and fight for justice. Then we moved to another event where you can go back in history in 1813 and take part in making the American flag and learn how Mary Pickersgill sewed and assembled the huge garrison flag. However, our most exciting visit was to inspirational tribute to Dr Martin Luther King Jr, actor Xavier Carnegie presented some selections from Dr King most powerful and compelling speeches, then there we saw some photographs and audio recording, it was worth every single minute. I need not to forget to mention how we crossed the journey of the civil war and walk through the Native Indian struggle and we spent brief time with some American presidents. We visited another museum which was the Air and Space Museum, but we shortened our time as we were so tired and it was getting late in the day. The Air and Space was so magnificent and huge. My trip to the Air and Space Museum was an incredible experience that I will never forget. There was so much to see and do that it seemed like we wouldn’t   have enough time to see everything. The main attractions to see were the space, WWI, and WWII galleries. There was Lots of air craft’s, space ships, and telescopes, in......

The Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, On 29 May 1453, Mehmet II, conquered Constantinople after a 54 day siege. He directly went to the ancient Byzantine cathedral of Hagia Sophia. When he saw a gentleman slashing the stones of the church and uttering that this was a temple for infidels, Mehmet II ordered the looting to be stopped and the church to be converted into a mosque. In addition, in another segment of the museum we were shown some scientific instruments. Astrolabe was one of them. In the Islamic world, astrolabes were used to find the times of sunrise and the rising of fixed stars, to help schedule morning prayers (salat).

There were many animals like lions, tigers, giraffes, cheetahs, bisons, various snakes and many other which we had only seen on TV. Then we had a visit to the famous ‘Vrindavan Garden’. There were spectacular structures of fountains. We saw water dance in the garden. It was mesmerizing!! We checked in in the hotel ‘SK Continental’. We had dinner and went to bed. Next day, we were to roam the same place, Mysore. On that day we saw Asia’s third biggest Nandi structure, temple of Durga or Parvati. There we also saw a statue of the demon ‘Mahisasura’. We went to Srirangapattan, the death place of the ‘Tiger of Mysore- Tipu Sultan’. There we saw Tipu’s Summer palace, Gumbaz- made by Tipu in the memory of his father’s and mother’s death. Afterwards, we visited to a place named ‘Jeevan Jyoti’, a place where priesthood can be attained in the guidance of seniors in a span of 14 years. The brothers of ‘Jeevan Jyoti’ entertained us very much. They also danced in the disguised costume of woman. We had dinner and at 10 pm started our journey towards Bangalore, the ‘Garden City of India’. We reached there at 2 am. We checked in in the hotel ‘ Sabarwal Viceroy’. We got up at 4:30 am.
