Similar to libraries, historical museums can benefit individuals with culture. Many of these institutions help educate the public through pieces that have been donated by patrons.

This week, the National Museum of African Art announced that it will host an exhibition to honor people who have donated throughout the years, according to NPR. "African Mosaic: Celebrating a Decade of Collecting" will open on November 19, featuring works that have been given to the museum. The works range from modern pieces to sculptures that display the origins of African art.

"I get particularly jazzed by stories that challenge popular misconceptions about Africa," Smithsonian Museum curator Christine Mullen Kreamer wrote for NPR. "Or, put another way, stories told through objects that illustrate how Africa, Africans, African arts have been - and continue to be - 'players' in the global arena."

Art-related jobs are predicted to increase by 12 percent over the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Museums that are full of historically-rich pieces can help individuals better understand culture prior to entering the field.
