Topic: Many museums and historical sites are mainly visited by tourist but
not local people. Why is it the case? What can be done to attract more local
people to visit these places?

It is true that according to statistic, the quantity of travelers is more than it of

local citizens in going to museums and history – related places. This essay aims
to examine the major causes of this phenomenon and propose some feasible
approaches to mitigate the situation.

newspapers to have some interviews and popular television programs to have
some reportages about these places; opening fanpages on social networks and
