Include in your paper an additional one paragraph description of the museum you visited. Write information that could only be obtained by an actual visit, not something you could find on the museum website. You may also include a scan of your ticket in lieu of this brief description. Be certain to name the museum you visited.

If you are in a war zone, you may visit a virtual museum: www.nga.gov; and www.met.org.

Submit your work in the Museum Assignment section. Also post your paper to the Week 5 Forum designed for the papers.  Read all other students’ entries and make comments when you like one of the postings.
