The creation of a museum in school and cities offers an opportunity for a school and its broader community to celebrate the institution’s no doubt unique history and heritage, and to offer an “open book to the world” of its history, contribution to society and its character.
History helps students develop critical thinking skills to look beyond the headlines, to ask questions properly, and to express their own opinions. History trains their mind and teaches them how to think and process information. History students are rounded individuals who develop an understanding of both past and present.
History helps children to understand change and how the community, nation and world we live in came to be. History helps them understand the origins of modern political and social problems. Thus, a lack of historical knowledge prevents people from truly understanding the world they live in.
