Many museums charge for admission while others are free. Do you think the advantages of charging people for admission to museums outweigh the disadvantages?

Recently, there has been a debate on whether museums should be free or not. While many museums impose a certain amount to be paid, others allow patronage at no cost.
This
essay will argue why the positive sides to
this
outweigh the disadvantages.
To begin
, people who think charging for
museum
Suggestion
the museum
is an overall negative development have their reasons. One of them is that, it restricts the categories of the population that can access to
facility
Suggestion

the facility
. Because of the price, which is considered exorbitant at times, the poor in the society will be discouraged from visiting the
museum
.

reduce
the patronage. Unlike the high patronage in the past, there has been a drastic drop in the number of people that visit a
museum
in Jamaica, due to

the recent introduction
of payment.
Therefore
, the pleasure of using the
museum
is inaccessible to some citizens.
Thus
, from their point of view, it should be free because of these disadvantages.

, fixing a price to enjoy what a
museum
has to offer, has more advantages despite the few demerits.

the maintenance
of the structure.

Thus

museum
are numerous enough for
this
to be continued. In conclusion, the demerits from payment for
museum
use pale in comparison to the advantages,
therefore
, measures for
continuation

should be put in place.

Include an introduction and conclusion

A conclusion is essential for IELTS writing task 2. It is more important than most people realise. You will be penalised for missing a conclusion in your IELTS essay.

The easiest paragraph to write in an essay is the conclusion paragraph. This is because the paragraph mostly contains information that has already been presented in the essay – it is just the repetition of some information written in the introduction paragraph and supporting paragraphs.

The conclusion paragraph only has 3 sentences:

  • Summary
  • Restatement of thesis
  • Prediction or recommendation

Example:

To summarize, a robotic teacher does not have the necessary disciple to properly give instructions to students and actually works to retard the ability of a student to comprehend new lessons. Therefore, it is clear that the idea of running a classroom completely by a machine cannot be supported. After thorough analysis on this subject, it is predicted that the adverse effects of the debate over technology-driven teaching will always be greater than the positive effects, and because of this, classroom teachers will never be substituted for technology.

Start your conclusion with a linking phrase. Here are some examples:

  • In conclusion
  • To conclude
  • To summarize
  • Finally
  • In a nutshell
  • In general
