Museums house natural and artificial artifacts left by people and nations long gone, and help current generations understand significant changes over time. While libraries provide us access to great history books, museums bring us objects that we can actually see — and in rare cases, touch — offering an altogether different experience, one untainted by our often misleading imaginations. Remember those elementary school field trips to the museum? A few of my classmates would express gratitude for living today, not then — after all, we have access to a ready supply of just about whatever it is we want or need, depending on your funds. However, a look at the 35 artifacts below exemplify how mankind has used whatever resources they had available to them at the time to improve the quality of life, display their power and status, and more. In this list, you’ll find some of the most incredible discoveries, from gold-plated daggers to the world’s oldest known revolver! After browsing, get off the Internet and make plans to visit your local museum for a sensory learning experience.
