Quotes about Museums
Quotes about Museums express famous people’s truth based on their experience and feelings. Quotes about Museums are popular because most people can relate to them in some way and on some level.
“A museum is a place where one should lose one’s head.”
– Renzo Piano
“The primary purpose of the Museum is to help people enjoy, understand, and use the visual arts of our time.”
– Alfred H. Barr Jr.
“Give me a museum and I’ll fill it.”
– Pablo Picasso
“Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering – because you can’t take it in all at once.”
– Audrey Hepburn
“The only way to understand painting is to go and look at it. And if out of a million visitors there is even one to whom art means something, that is enough to justify museums.”
– Pierre-Auguste Renoir
“Don’t go to a museum with a destination. Museums are wormholes to other worlds. They are ecstasy machines. Follow your eyes to wherever they lead you…and the world should begin to change for you.”
– Jerry Saltz, Art Critic
“The Museum is not meant either for the wanderer to see by accident or for the pilgrim to see with awe. It is meant for the mere slave of a routine of self-education to stuff himself with every sort of incongruous intellectual food in one indigestible meal.”
– G. K. Chesterton
“If people don’t like Marxism, they should blame the British Museum.”
– Mikhail Gorbachev
“Museums and art stores are also sources of pleasure and inspiration. Doubtless, it will seem strange to many that the hand unaided by sight can feel the action, sentiment, beauty in the cold marble; and yet it is true that I derive genuine pleasure from touching great works of art. As my fingertips trace line and curve, they discover the thought and emotion which the artist has portrayed.”
– Helen Keller (The first deaf-blind person to earn a bachelor of arts degree.)
“An art book is a museum without walls.”
– Andre Malraux
“Museums are managers of consciousness. They give us an interpretation of history, of how to view the world and locate ourselves in it. They are, if you want to put it in positive terms, great educational institutions. If you want to put it in negative terms, they are propaganda machines.”
– Hans Haacke
“A country that has few museums is both materially poor and spiritually poor … Museums, like theatres and libraries, are a means to freedom.”
“The modern world thinks of art as very important: something close to the meaning of life.”
– Alain de Botton
