Hi Jess,

Very intriguing articles, and more suprising how the Louvre defines the motivation of museum visitors, "Visiting museums has always been about self-improvement. Partly we seem to go to them to find something we already recognize, something that gives us our bearings: think of the scrum of tourists invariably gathered around the Mona Lisa." 

Best, Vicki
