it a compulsion for the visitors to pay a fee for visiting the premises while others have kept it without any payments. Despite of its demerits of discouraging attitude and sense of an undue expense among the visitors, there are several benefits
as, increased revenue and filtering of the right audiences for these places. In my opinion,
the advantages
are more considerable as compared to the disadvantages. On the one hand, one of the biggest drawbacks of charging an entrance money from people is that they might feel
to visit museums and rather choose to visit some other more entertaining and more fun places which are either free or where they have to pay comparable charges.

facilities as according to a vast majority of people, all
facilities are among the basic human rights and should be funded by the government. A recent study concluded that educational and informative facilities which are free are opted 60% more as compared to the ones for which people had to spend from their own pocket.

those people who use these places just as the spots for meeting their friends and spend some time with them. According to a study conducted by the students of a private sector university in Pakistan those museums which charge its customers are 50% more preferred than the ones which allow a free to the general public. In conclusion, a lot of museums require their visitors to buy entry tickets, whereas, there are others those provide
facility for free. The free entry has positive outcomes
as more money earned by these institutions for their better operations and
