Museums

Europe has some of the world’s greatest museums and there are plenty to choose from in all of the countries. When European countries colonized across the globe their archaeologists discovered many of the of the ancient sites in Egypt, China, India, Mesopotamia, etc. They uncovered ancient cites, tombs and civilizations  all but lost centuries ago. The artifacts they uncovered where sent back to their museums in Europe. Today some of these artifacts have become controversial between the countries of their origin and the European museums they are kept in. Some pieces have been return museums in other countries while others remain unresolved. In addition Europe has had explosive periods of learning and progressive thinking. The eras of the Greeks , the Romans, the Renaissance, the Age of Enlightenment and the Industrial Revolution all gave us great contributions in the arts, sciences, literature, architecture and culture. So much of which is exhibited in the museums across Europe.
