After exploring a museum for a while, we all get a little bit tired, no matter how fascinating the subject might be. This phenomenon is known as “museum fatigue” and here are four ways to fight it.

Take Breaks

Travelers usually buy museum passes in an attempt to save money, but this also means you have to cover a lot of ground in a day or two. There’s nothing wrong with that, but make sure to take breaks between separate visits.

Don’t Go Alone

If you have someone willing to join you, make sure you don’t go alone. The time goes faster when you’re engaged in conversation about the pieces you like as you move on to the next ones.

Dress Comfortably

Buying a museum pass means you’ll be spending a whole day in different museums, so make sure to dress in layers and wear comfortable shoes.

Use Audio Guide

Audio guides will set a pace for your visit and provide you with enough background information to appreciate each piece you see. You can even admire them from a far while listening to your guide.
