Apparently, visitors to the museum are directed around the facility by the staff of the museum. In addition to that, the particular individual allocated the role is also expected to explain any questions pertaining to the archived materials in the museum. On the contrary, with the incorporation of fascinating art constructed in a surrounding which is resembles a stage, suggests a narrative or metaphorical significance.

5. Which is your favorite piece of art currently on display in the museum? Describe and critically analyze the piece and explain why you find it compelling.
All the pieces displayed are my favourite and I find it hard to decide on one particular object. However most of the works of art are unique in the manner in which the old ink paint has been blended with the canvas.
