Description

Museums, which are the exhibition area of art, science, history and culture, are immortal memories that carry the past to the present, especially put forward by humanity. Considering the museums displaying hundreds, thousands of fossils, these areas, which offer information from millions of years ago, are the social memories of nations, especially when considered on the basis of nation. Of course, it would not be right to limit museums as places where past cultural assets are exhibited. At the same time, they are places where art and intelligence products of the recent past are exhibited in ethnography, science, nature and folklore museums.

Historical buildings, places and especially museums are the areas where social learning conditions are most favorable. Museums, which are created with different concepts, especially on national, local or general issues, offer individuals an enjoyable learning opportunity. When viewed from this aspect, it is revealed that museums have educational roles besides their research, collecting and preserving historical objects.

Museums, which are living laboratories of lessons such as history, science, social studies, and life sciences, are important areas that support the education of children and young people who are in the education stage, experiment in the field and make learning enjoyable. Especially historical places and museums offer students the opportunity to see and examine rich historical resources in a lively environment. This enables students to become aware of the nature of history and its backyard. In this respect, it is supported by many educators to teach students what history is and how it should be understood through experience during a museum visit.

Thanks to museum education, teachers will be able to study their lessons vividly and learning will become permanent.
