Some people regard that museums should be enjoyable places to entertain people such as the sea museum or others which tend to attract children, however, others believe, the purpose of museums is still to educate rather than entertain people.

Admittedly, among present museums, there are simply a couple of museums built for amusing children such as the sea museum as I referred to, although this kind of museum could be regarded as a entertaining place for children, to a large extent, parents prefer to educating their child and enabling them to know much more about the sea through visiting these museums. Therefore, as for me, even though there are some museums where people could be relax as a leisure place, but essentially, I still believe the founder just tend to provide more significant information through the way of recreation.
