I’d like to talk about a visit to a local Museum during which I was very pleased. Last summer, I traveled to the UK with my friends, where various theaters, ancient architecture and museums are available. On our first day in London, we took the sightseeing bus to the National Gallery, a world renowned museum, which includes paintings and sculpture from famous artists. I remembered it was a lovely sunny day and lots of people sat in front of the museum and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine. My friends and I expected to see the authentic works because we are fans of oil painting and we watched a documentary of classical art before we came to London. Entering the National Gallery, we were lost in these glamorous oil painting and were amazed by the large collection of painting in this museum. We took a close look at the famous works of Monet, Van Gough and Leonardo da Vinci. We also read the stories and introduction behind those painting. We spent a whole afternoon in the National Gallery. I think it was a happy day because I feasted my eyes on the arts in the museum and got richer understanding of oil painting history. Anyway, this tour was an memorable experience.
