The museum helps us step out of our ordinary lives by taking us to another time or to a different place on the earth. An example is at the exhibit where they displayed many animals with descriptions showing creatures that existed billions of years ago in different places on the Earth.
In the end, the museum helps us understand who we are because it shows the past and our origin. In addition, the creatures that existed from the time that we originated. For the museum displayed many things and I knew about probably 10-20% of it. The rest was all new to me which shows me how mysterious nature is and how little humans know about it. Thus, the museum helps us understand the mysteries of the earth through displays about extinct creatures, humans of the past, and the geography of the earth over time.
