Sample Answer of Describe a Museum that You Have Visited
I will like to talk about le life museum in Ogun state. During one of the excursions I went with my schoolmates in Secondary school, we were opportune to travel toile life, among the places we visited was their museum located at the centre of the town near their oba’s palace. It is an ancient building that has about three sections, and each one has a story to tell; the first room has a lot of artefacts, olden cooking wares and clothing, in fact mostly household items that were used between ten to twenty decades ago, another room has paintings that portray the means of the people livelihood, also drawing of what slave trade looked like, I also saw the chains used in slave trading, then the third room has historical books. I was overwhelmed with what I saw and the explanation given by the museum guide; I never wanted the tour to end. When I got to the hotel we were staying at, I reflected on what I saw and heard and imagined what life was like. Then, I came to appreciate the impact of recent developments. My experience is one I can’t forget and wish to visit there again if I’m given the opportunity.
