49TH INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN’S EXHIBITION OF FINE ART LIDICE 2021 - Scholastic World - Contests for Indian Students


Tuesday, 21 December 2021


n museums, people can learn about the world's diversity and shared history.

Your artworks can be inspired by:

Various collections that are collected, conserved, studied and exhibited in museums. All kinds of things can be found among them: minerals, dinosaur skeletons or even technical inventions, but in museums, we can also learn about intangible heritage. Another inspiration can be galleries and museums of art with famous artworks. Museums are often beautiful buildings, but sometimes they don't even need a roof – all over the world, open air museums show traditions of ancestors to people and the beauty of the landscape that they grew in. Botanical and zoological gardens are also special kinds of museums.

Museum is like a living organism with its own structure: many people take part in its daily life. Scientists and historians, security guards, archivists, custodians… and of course visitors.
