Museums are places where great works of art and those valuable treasures of the past are kept in display for the public. They house some of the most precious findings and works from those old ages and hence need to be given the maximum protection and care by the government. Usually, in every country the government maintains control over the museum and its valuable items as they might be easily misused or mishandled when left in the control of a private body. Visiting a museum, one can hope to learn a lot of new things and can also look at some of the rarest pieces of work and items created and used by mankind. There are countless museums of great importance in the United States.
