  THE TAPESCRIPT

I totally love museums. They really are one of the most important parts of our culture. Museums are important for so many things. They educate us, they preserve our history, they show us how we have developed. There are museums on so many different things. In fact, I’m sure there isn’t a topic there isn’t a museum for. I’ve loved museums since I was little. We used to go to different museums on school trips. I loved them. I saw so many amazing things. I will never forget seeing the bones of a T-Rex in the natural history museum. I also remember staring at Tutankhamen’s gold mask for ages. I couldn’t take my eyes off of it. The best museum I’ve ever been to is the National Museum in Cairo. It’s unbeatable.
