  • For Young People

    I think that museums should be free for young people. They give young people the opportunity to not only enjoy arts but also learn value of culture. Generally, In Japan, most students learn various cultures by only reading textbook at school. However, it's very important for them to understand cultures "directly". By appreciating arts directly, it's possible for students to get something that textbook can't give them. For that reason, I agree that museums should be free.

  • Yes, and some already are.

    Museums are not only enjoyment; they are education, and as such, should be free. While I can appreciate the enormous costs involved in maintaining and obtaining collections, let the wealthiest one-percent of the country pay for it. The Met in NYC is technically free; they ask you to give what you can afford. But the idea of a person or child interested in art, not being able to view it because of cost, is morally wrong.

  • Tricky question, but yes, they should be free.

    I think art exhibits should be free for the public. I do, however, think twice a year, the museums should host a fundraising event to help pay for the cost of upkeep. They do it all the time. Wealth buyers pay $100 for a plate and the proceeds are given to the museum. If you decide you want to buy the art, the proceeds should go to the artist, with a fee going to the museum.

  • Yes, museums should be free

    Museums provide culture and inspire learning in the youth and population of a country, and lead to an increased sense of wonder and desire to explore. For purely selfish reasons, corporations and businessmen should strive to support museums and other cultural destinations, in hopes that generations of future workers are more creative and able to do good work.

  • It’s educational for people.

    That will be very good for poor people’s kids because they will be able to teach their kids about history. And it will also affect the city because people will be able to save some money and there would be less homeless and poor people. That’s why I think that museums should be free.

  • Yes , museums should be free

    Because some people they not have money to visit the museums and they can’t know about there history if it free than they can know a lot of there history and they will be sow happy to know about the history and will be nice to have some information about history

  • Don't pay to go to a museum!

    Paying a lot of money to go to some place full of old stuff is not a good idea when you can go to your basement instead because there is probably a ton of old stuff down there and if that is not good enough for you try the attic.

  • Museums open up opportunities.

    Why should you have to pay to learn? You shouldn't! The economy still makes money. Maybe from the museum gift shops. My point is, think of all the people who don't get to go to museums because they can't afford it. It probably sucks! Museums are so fun and inspiring and many people don't get to experience it.

  • Yes because yes

    We are poor people and we have no money for museums. More museums should offer free admission during specified hours or days of the week. In the end of the last bell, studen have opportunity to visit some popular museums, art galleries, cinemas, theatres. Thank you for your attension. :)

  • Because people that have access to knowledge know more.

    Some museums do it already. According to the survey, “museums in major cities – especially those that attract tourists – by and large charge for entry. Their counterparts in areas with fewer international tourists or which rely on local visitors are more likely to be free because they need those visitors to return.”
    In other words, a city’s “tourism desirability” can make the difference between free admission and a hefty fee.

  • Law of Economics: TANSTAAFL

    There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch. Nothing is free, but in this day and age we have a mindset of entitlement. Also, if the people don't pay and funds don't cut it, then the government will pay, then people will pay by taxes, and our nation will pay by debt.

  • You heard of taxes boi?

    If a paid ticket wasn't required to enter museums, someone still has to fund them right? YEAH! The government can do that! Oh wait... There is one way that the government likes to get its money: TAXES! YOU WOULD HAVE TO PAY MORE TAXES! Do you want to pay more taxes 'yes' people!?

  • Need to be selective

    Not everyone wants to go to a museum. The people who do, should be willing to bear a nominal cost, just as they would for a movie at the cinema or even take-out. Tax apologists should understand that the people not interested in visiting museums are being forced to pay for their upkeep if their tax money is going in the maintenance of these museums.

  • No we must pay

    I think that we must pay to enter the museums because they worked hard to find these old things for us ,, some times the children play in the museums and broke the things ,, and also they pay for the security , staff and building costs .
    I don't say that you must pay a lot but you can a little for better quality .

  • A museum is valuable to are society

    A museum is valuable to are society and should be supported by the public via entrance fee and donations. A museum is a non-profit, permanent institution in the service of society and its development, open to the public, which acquires, conserves, researches, communicates and exhibits the tangible and intangible heritage of humanity and its environment for the purposes of education, study and enjoyment.

    This is my opinion

  • Museums need funding too.

    There is almost no way for them to pay for themselves if they are constantly expected to survive on nothing but donations. It is not a high cost for an educational vacation to pay the small admission fee. The only way I could argue that this would be a good idea (to make museum admission free) is to de-fund a bazillion other things.
