Would you consider someone who has never been to any kind of museum to be culturally ignorant?

Well I have access to museums and don't attend them, but I'm definitely not culturally ignorant!

There's more than one way to study culture other than museums.

Museums are fun these days, especially ScienceWorks. It's all hands on stuff. But not everybody enjoys it and I think no less of them because of it. Boring old farts that they are.

No, culture is a multi faceted thing. A person may be uncultured in some aspects and brilliant in others.

Within Western culture, where I think everyone past a certain age has the opportunity, regardless of convenience, to go to a museum, yeah, I'd call them culturally ignorant.
Actually, I prefer the term "culturally illiterate," as it doesn't assume so much blame on the person as the word "ignorant." It's a less subjective term, too, I think.

Not really. I like museums, but there are so many other ways of getting culture - music, theatre, books, movies, even the television.

Not necessarily ignorant, but I would find it strange

No, I consider such a person to be American.

I've been to several museums (including the Smithsonian) and while i find them interesting, I find it hard to call them "cuturally relevant".. Aside from the cliche' "Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it" part of the experience, i don't see how viewing the Hope Diamond makes me any more or less cultured. So i would not refer to someone who chooses to find culture elsewhere as "ignorant", no.

no, i consider them lucky.

j/k, but i find a lot of musuems, especially art musuems to be very boring. ive been to alot of them, with my parents and grandparents, but they're not really my thing. i dont think someone who has not been to be culturally ignorant though.

You don't ever have to set foot inside a museum and still be intellectually bright. You can also go there everyday and be very ignorant. Stepping inside a museum does not guarantee you'll learn anything.

No, I don't learn much from museums. They're more for just looking at displays of things that you already know about.

Cause you can learn so much from the collections in Milwaukee.
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/11/05 - 5:47:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
No...maybe just uninformed.
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 7/11/05 - 6:03:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
Well, I don't consider myself 'culturally ignorant'...:p
