How did dadaism get its name?

A lot of Dada art tends to be very nonsensical. Some will argue that "Dada" means "hobbyhorse" in French. However, "Dada" was more likely just recognized as baby talk, or something a baby might say. It was the name that made the least amount of sense, which was perfect because that is a Dada characteristic.

What is the importance of a museum?

Well, museums have importance for people who enjoy history, or who are very interested in one particular subject. There are Art museums, Railroad museums, dollhouse museums, and museums devoted to history, or the history of a certain area. There are many, many other types as well.

For people who love paintings by very popular artists, but are too poor to buy a painting, Art museums are probably the only chance they will have to see an original... Picasso, for example.

Museums are a popular tourist activity. When you go to a new state or a new country, seeing some of the history pictured or described at a museum is interesting and even fun. I have been to visit a couple of large dams, and seeing the historical information about how the dams were built was fascinating to me.

That said, obviously all museums aren't going to appeal to all people. There are as many types of museums as there are interests, and so... if you like cars, you could go to a car museum. :) If you like sports, you could go to a sports museum (could be called a hall of fame). If you like books, you could go to the library... or, er... many museums display old books and documents. :)

Answer 2: I actually love museums especially when you travel out of your own area. Museums are a treasure trove of history and culture. In Awake magazine 3/8/05 it says in Washington, DC without a doubt, the preeminent center of interest for visitors is the Smithsonian Institution. Because it is not merely one museum-it is a whole collection of museums and centers of knowledge. According to one travel guide the most popular of the Smithsonian facilities is the National Air and Space Museum- the most visited in the world. It has 23 extensive galleries and its exhibits, many hanging from the ceiling, illustrate the history of flight. On display is the Flyer, the very airplane that Orville Wright used for his historic flight at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, in 1903. Nearby is Charles Lindberg's Spirit of St Louis. Interested in bank notes-the Bureau of engraving and statistics is walking distance away. Over $140 billion worth of money is printed here each year. Nextdoor is the Holocaust Museum, and the National Museum of the American Indian. I visited the Louvre in Paris which is rated second in the world and got to see the tiny, yet amazing Mona Lisa and the Moabite Stone. A week later in Spain I visited the Picasso museum. These are things you read about and the amazing history contained in them, but when you actually get to visit and see for yourself, you are in AWE!!!!! Plan a museum trip, you will not regret it.

There are also museums at the sites where historical people lived, so you can learn more about their lives. There are military museums where you can learn the history of weapons and warfare... or uniform styles. :)

What is the value of a sterling silver tray that is manufactured by FB Rogers Silver Co model number 7734E?

According to Replacements Ltd., the FB Rogers 7734 tray is silver-plated, not solid sterling. As of December 12, 2010, you can purchase this item through the company for $24.99.

Replacements, Ltd. indicates there were only a few patterns made of real sterling. The registered pattern numbers are 118, 142, 144, 149, 164, 250, 400, 700 and 1636. The genuine silver version will have the word "Sterling" stamped on the bottom of each piece. If it doesn't say "sterling," it isn't. Naturally, sterling will command a higher price than silver plate; for example, several thousand dollars for a tea set.

What is the best way for students who have never been to a a museum before view the exhibits productively?

How to learn at museums the first timeIf one has never visited a museum, one should follow this basic structure.

1. Make a plan. Using a map, look at the possible routes through the museum. Make sure to include most of the exhibits you want to see.

2. Distribute notepads and pens. Have students copy a sentence or 2 about the exhibits that catch their eye. You can all share answers back in the classroom.

3. It is NEVER too late for a lunch break! Make sure to visit shops and food areas to kep your students from nodding off!

4. During lunch, sit with the children and ask questions about the museum and take requests for places to visit next.

5. In the classroom, have students take out their notebooks or paper and call on children to read their explinations out loud. Write them on the blackboard, and ask that the students copy them. Once this is done, make a word wall of some kind regarding what you saw today and assign for the kids to look up different aspects of things they saw.

  • tips*

Remember, a museum is also fun. Encourage talking about exhibits. Museums can be as fun as amusement parks. Always make bad mummy jokes at Egyptian exhibits, or any bad joke pertaining to the subject manner. And, if you can, get an offical or an expert to lecture the kids on the subject matter. Kids can pick up alot from a 10 minute lecture!
