Nowadays museum and historical sites are mainly visited by foreign tourists instead of locals. Why this is happening? What can be done to get locals to visit museums and historical sites more?

In recent times, foreign visitors are seen to
visit
the historical sites and museums more often than the local people.
This
is happening because
locals
Suggestion
the locals
do not want to expend money by watching same old heritage pictures and statues. Again, the ticket price
to
Suggestion
of
entry at these museums have increased double in the
last
three years.
However
,
government
Suggestion
the government
should
low
Suggestion
lower
the ticket price and
also
make plans to organize
monthly exhibition
Suggestion
monthly exhibitions
a monthly exhibition
in these museums and historical places so that locals as well as foreigners can
visit
these sites more often.
Firstly
, people are
nowdays
the period of time that is happening now; any continuous stretch of time including the moment of speech
nowadays
too busy in their daily life that they do not make time to spend quality time with their families and friends. Again, general people will not spend money in the museums by watching same things again and again. They do not find these sites appealing to them. But the foreigners who come to
visit
for the
first
time in a country, are more interested to know that country's culture, history and development through visiting the historical places.
For instance
, a recent survey shows that, foreign tourists are seen to
visit
Lalbagh fort, the key tourist attraction in Dhaka, every year than the local people.
This
survey
also
shows that locals do not
visit
these sites due to lack of newness.
Secondly
, the ticket prices for entering these museums should be lower for the local people. Beside
this
, some kind of fun activities can be introduced
for example
, quiz contests are great for youngsters as they will more be interested to come and participate in the contests and in
this
way it will help them to build up knowledge about history and culture. In conclusion, government can take some actions to make our history alive and
also
introducing new programs can make the locals as well as foreigners interested to
visit
these sites.
