A museum visit can range from a pleasant visit to the most boring of the tours. Some think that museums are not for everyone, but if we understand the huge amount of works of art that there is always we can find one for every taste.
To my love to visit museums and not always for its collection of art. Generally the museums are in buildings of historical or architectural importance and are tranquil spaces. Sometimes I closure in a museum to find a corner where to read and listen to music. I also believe that not all museums are interesting, some are aimed at very specific interests or tastes, others offer as conceptual art that it would need to be on drugs to complete the experience. In short, there for all tastes.
I share five ways to visit a museum. The intention is that each of them is an experience in itself. There is no one better than another, and they are of course not the only options.
This tour is ideal for a first visit to big as the Met, the British, the Louvre and similar museums that would have to be literally years to see everything what they offer. Many of them have apps with the main works or drawings on paper that may help you. If you can’t find anything like that, before touring the museum visit the souvenir shop and buy about ten postcards and looks for these works of art. It will be fun both find them how to enjoy them.
Not you keys to see everything, but make it not to remember it. It is better to focus on certain works and study them, or see that you cause.
The vast majority of the museums offer a couple of hours, often free tours. The best way to find out schedules and topics is on the official pages of each museum. To my I really like these tours because they are taken by scholars or lovers of art and ask all the questions you want. They focus on a few works and give you useful information.
The tour of the magnetism
I love this way of seeing museums! You walk through the Museum and you delay in any work that catches your attention. If the author or part are famous it is unimportant. Be inspired by this piece, analyze, and focus. In this way, I’ve found some of my favorite paintings which are not necessarily the most popular artists. The Museum is to create an experience and a special moment.
The iPod tour
This is very simple, instead of putting you the audioguide you get your ipod with your favourite music and enjoy art, leaving you to take. The point is to create a sensory experience beyond the intellectual. Both look at art as space, the people, the atmosphere. You feel that you’re in a movie and don’t be afraid to not read the explanations of the works. The art was made to make you feel and I am sure that the artist who did the work that you look at would be happy with the way you enjoy your creation.
To not make balls and saturate you information that you’re not going to remember sometimes it is advisable to focus on one theme, room, or space. For example: If you’re in a museum with a large collection of Impressionist art stay there nailing you in that section, use your gadgets to access Google and read something about the current Impressionist and observes the details of the works. Imagine that you are in a class and get tasks. You’ll be amazed how much fun, entertaining and above all education is.
