Perot Museum of Nature and Science
It is the role of museums to collect and preserve knowledge, teach us about our world, and engage us in cultural interactions. Museums focus on education as their primary goal, so they try to raise awareness of the world around them through experiences with different types of media. They bring new understanding and exploration opportunities that tell a story to others. The potential for museums to shape society’s understanding is great because they can be seen as controlling a piece or information.
For those interested in understanding and preserving our global environment, museums have become crucial in expanding our knowledge and understanding of the world. These well-appointed institutions provide a place for critical thinking about climate change and ecology, as well as presenting compelling displays of preserved ecosystems that may otherwise disappear from the planet completely.
