雅思大作文：public museums and art galleries will not be needed
雅思大作文题目：Nowadays，Some people claim that public museums and art galleries will not be needed because people can see historical objects and works of art by using a computer.To what extent you agree or disagree with this opinion? Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
Museums and art centres have become major tourist attractions within urban areas, and yet some propose that these sites would be visited on websites for intensive spread, alternative preservation and cheaper visiting costs. This argument is partially true.
Virtual visits mainly benefits on three parties. For culture and art, pictures of artefacts and exhibits can be immediately uploaded and globally browsed, which guarantees a significantly faster and wider spread. In regard to relics and works of art, it is beneficial that their pictures uploaded and saved on servers can be easily backed up at present and their three-dimensional models will be established with the progress of virtual reality technology in the future, because they face inevitable ruin out of time and disasters. Consequently in the long run, data of these items are preserved in the form of images and models, entitling descendants to have possible visits. Lastly, viewing artworks online is obviously more economical for visitors.
However, museums and art galleries in reality should not be replaced. One of the main reasons of actual visit is that first-hand observations, embedding deeper impresions, provides better experiences because it is more enjoyable to have a close look at vivid striations on a body sculpture and have a gentle touch on rocks of a castle ramport in comparison with picutures. In addition, these sites are currently the favourite places of interst for tourists and, for the sake of the local tourism income, these attractions are still needed.
To conclude my own view, the tendency of virtualizing many activities seems to be natural and unavoidable and this argument can indeed gain its favour out of solid reasons. Nevertheless, the total replacement of physical existence of the sites will deprive peoples right to sense their real magnificence and marvel.
