I think it should be free because It is just some art for view, To look at you should not have to pay in especially for looking at historical animals, People etc.

Have you ever heard of TANSTAAFL? There ain't no such thing as a free lunch. In order for art museums to be free, You would need to give a way that art museums would be funded.

But how would art museums cover funds? They would have to pay for electric bills, Employees, Insurance, These things aren't just free. Can you tell me how we are supposed to fund these museum without admission fees?
Anyway, People appreciate art museums more when they have to pay to get into them.

museums already do this. This still is not enough money to replace admission fees. This is evident in the fact that most free art museums have to close because of finances.
