Report shows that it is increasingly expensive to keep museums open to public. Find the best way to fund them （government， business or individuals）.
In the modern cities， museums not only have been the place to store ancient stuffs， but also a symbol of one city＇s cultural heritage. Because of carrying the cultural meaning， museums have always been free for citizens， but the huge expenditure in running them cannot be ignored， which is worth thinking about some solutions.
Nowadays， influenced by the globalization， it is more important to maintain and develop our culture in the younger generation， and as one of the main parts in spreading the knowledge of traditions and history， museum plays an indispensable role with educational meanings to all the teenagers in the country as well as tourists attracted by diversity. Besides， the things left by our ancestors belong to all the human beings， which means that no matter who you are， it is the basic right to visit the museum for free. And obviously， the cost in maintenance and protection is tremendous， and our expectation is really high， bringing huge pressure to both the government and the museum.
In order to make the museum better， gaining support and financial aid from the society is necessary. Museum also can be a part of the development of the region， so that the government has the responsibility to allocate some of its fiscal revenue which mainly comes from the tax to the operation of the museums； combined with this， calling up the big companies to sponsor by the government could be an effective way to get more investment in the development of the museums. In addition， individuals living in the world should make some effort to protect the precious gift from thousands years ago， and what we can do is to donate for it and make sure its function in education fields can be sustainable， lasting for a long time.
In conclusion， in spite of a number of difficulties in maintaining and protecting the museums， there are still a lot of things we can do； as long as we can realize the importance of them and begin to seek the way of solving the problems， I believe there will be a brighter future for all the museums.
