Grrrr game reserve

Oh wow well I love some musems and used to love going to them as a kid and even now. But these days it depends what type of museum it is and what they have on display! However, I've never been on a real game reserve safari like and would love to do that one day. Maybe in the game reserves, see some lions, tigers, hippos and zebra's and that. I just don't like the look of some of those game reserve vehicles and they look too open and exposed for me to be driving around where there are hungry man eating beasts that could swipe your entire face off in one feel swoop. Call me paranoid and over protective of my face LOL :D

Be One with Nature

Honestly speaking I love visiting museums but I am more fascinated with nature. I have a soft spot for endangered animals and by visiting game reserve, I will become more aware of the situation and maybe somehow I could help in raising more awareness by posting my visit to my Social Media accounts. Given the chance I would bring my nieces and nephews so they would enjoy and appreciate the magnificent beauty of Mother Nature. It is important that at a young age they will realized the value of all life forms. Each and every animals on Earth has as much right to be here as we are.

Great experience

I think that it is a lot of fun. Getting to see the animals and nature is jst awesome as well as being very educational. Museums tend to be too serious and restricted in my opinion. The only museum which I must say I really enjoyed was the Museum of Natural History situated in Toulouse to be honest.

Visit a game reserve

Museums are great but they are no way in any way close to visiting an actual and real game reserve. It's just totally different to things like museums and zoos. These animals will be in their natural habitats and will be completely unbothered by humans (in terms of feeding, killing them and looking after them etc.). Everything they do is natural and that's what makes visiting a game reserve so exciting.

Game reserves

I love nature and spending time with nature. For me it is very rewarding and a great stress reliever. I prefer to be outside rather then inside. I have been to some great museums and learned a lot from them but given a choice I would chose a game Reserve every time.

Very fun

As you have said game reserves are extremely important for preserving the animals that are close to extinction and they are great for giving us a chance to see the animals in their natural habitat. You can't do that all the time so this is an incredible experience that we should be grateful for.

You can see such incredible beasts just moving around, socializing with other animals and so on. I really love the game revenues and I would go there more often if we had any nearby. Also, they are highly educational.

Game Reserve

Museums are pretty great and all and there's a lot to be learned there about the past, but I'd much rather do something a bit more exciting like go to a safari or something. I've been to many museums and only two safaris so maybe I'm just fed up with history so maybe if I was more into history museums would be more fascinating, but as life stands now watching animals, bugs, and nature as it was meant to give me a certain ease of mind.

Game Reserve

I'd like to go to a game reserve because I love animals and the outdoors and I've never had the chance to visit one before. I have already been to so many museums that they no longer seem exciting to me, and I would prefer to try something new like going to a game reserve. I would also feel better about seeing the animals because they are able to be free in their natural habitat rather than in a zoo.

Reminds me about one that was near our home, I there whenever I was stressed up with issues and the peace and quietness would really give me that needed natural healing.

More Exciting

I have been visiting many museums but not many game reserves and this is mainly due to the price. We do not normally have to pay to visit museums over here but visiting game reserves can be quite costly. Nevertheless, I have visited some game reserves over here and really enjoyed. It is a different experience. I have seen many animals and learnt quite a lot about them. We also came across some animals which we have never seen before. I have always loved to be in nature and that's another reason why I prefer to visit a game reserve rather than a museum. It is more fun and relaxing to be in nature and admiring those animals.

Game reserves

My vote goes for the game reserves because I like all that is related to nature and animals. I would love to visit such a place and see the animals living in a wild place.

I totally understand you, I come from a country with many game parks and game reserves. I feel one with nature all the time I get to visit these places.

Once in a lifetime experience

Oh my - if given the choice of visiting a museum or visiting a game reserve - I wouldn't even have to give it any thought.

As unlike museums which I can visit anytime I want to - especially as they are in abundance here - the opportunity of seeing the wildlife that I generally only get to see in Movies or on TV - living as they should be - in their own natural habitat - would for sure - be a once in a lifetime experience that would far outweigh anything that a museum has to offer.

Museum is fine but

I like both places, to be honest. But to me, there is nothing like having a glimpse of the wild. Sure the culture and history present at the museum are fascinating. But nothing beats seeing action live

One of a kind experience

Seeing animals contained in zoos is a fun and interactive experience as you will learn a lot from them, especially if there is basic and trivial information about the animals. Being able to observe animals in their habitat though is an experience that can teach people the beauty of life. These animals also live their lives and experience emotions too as much as humans do. It may be very expensive to visit a game reserve but the experience and memory of it lasts a lifetime.

Exciting!

I'm generally terrify of any animal out there, even small pets, if they are not mine they are dangerous to me, Period. But I will take this choice because it seems more exciting than just seeing paints in a wall. I think it would be a nice adventure and if I have the power to chose It would be this!

Life.

I really like the two options (depending on the places I travel, I always visit them), but I think being in touch with the "real world" is more exciting.

I love the abstract field of museums, but the thrill of life moving right before my eyes gets me easier. I can spend hours and hours in this place without getting tired.

Game reserve for me

I love animals. So it's the best place for me. I love seeing different animals and nature. It's one way of getting away to busy life of the city. Going to game reserves give me comfort and satisfaction. I love seeing animals lurking around freely. And i love to see those wild animals that we can't see everyday. the feeling of being one with nature is the best feeling for the city person like me.

Well, i won't mind visiting the two, but when am thrown in between the two and told to go to one, i would surely go to the game reserves, i love looking at the awesome work of nature, and looking and visiting animals gives me joy, and helps me relax

The Game Park

This the best and favourite place to visit and discover wildlife and great wild animals. As a small school going child I had the privilege of learning about the different type of wildlife by visiting these game reserves.

Environmental friendly.

I'd like to visit game reserve in different locations in the world. I want to see in action on how they manage or make still some endagered species or other things. To see species like that is once in a lifetime that maybe we can't see it in the near future. So I am truly thankful for the people who take this kind of job.

Fresh breeze takes me to the Park

In as much as I can't totally rule out that I visit the museums once in a while maybe with friends and family members, but I can't rule out the special joy I get from visiting a game reserve almost twice or more in a week.

One thing is that I am that type of person that is in love with nature and enjoy being in any area with nature present. Whenever I am back from work, I always take a walk to the game reserve to catch up with fresh air as well as feel the warm power of nature.

It helps me get ready for another working day and also improves my working performance as well!

best option

I like seeing different kinds of animals and beautiful nature that's I'd choose game reserve. It's relaxing to visit this kind of place and a great bonding with my family. visiting museum was great also but for a nature lover, it was the best place for me.

Love of nature

If you crave and value nature, definitely I think that Visiting a game Reserve would be your choice over going to museum. The sense of life at game reserve is what makes it more fun and interesting than going to museum.

Visiting a game reserve would afford you the opportunity to view and witness all sorts of animals (wild) that you actually wouldn't dream of seeing in ordinary zoo.

Visiting a museum

Visiting a museum
Museum holds valuable artifacts, that satiate penchants of history, on their quest to get deep insight of past events. Most museums are highly secured, because they house items with notable historical impact. Taking children to the museum, is highly beneficial, because it creates a mindset within them, they gradually become interested in previous happenings, their mind becomes broadened on historical facts. Special guides take people around the museum, this is mostly fascinating, and some objects can make you stunned. A lot of story telling accompany museum outings, stories related to each artifact are being told, so moments spent at the museum is always worthwhile.

Children can easily develop the skill of comparing and contrasting by visiting museums, their mind is engaged in critical thinking, they gradually learn to focus on things they perceive to be highly important, and less emphasis is placed on other subjects.

Visiting museums, fundamentally reignites our creativity, you add to your creativity strikingly by visiting museums, most of the things found there are unique, fresh ideas spark up as you stroll within the museum.

The scenes are inspirational, you will see things that are mind blowing, this has a way in making us desire to delve into the impossible. Places that inspire the mind as the museum does, are very few, museums have an edge in awakening the life within us.

Pros
• Filled with ancient treasures. • Increases our creativity. • very inspirational. • Generates revenue. • Interesting stories are being told about each object.

Cons
• Their might be multiple stories about a particular artifact. • Some objects represents sad memories.

Museums

I like museums more because the area is just cleaner and I don't really like getting mud on my clothes so museum is a better option for me. Also, in the museum there are more valuable things.

museum!

I love the quiet, peaceful atmosphere of a museum. It's so much fun to wander around for hours reading, thinking, and learning. I have never been to the Smithsonian and can't wait to go. There are also so many wonderful museum's in New York. I have been to a great Native American display in New York which was so educational. It's great seeing real artifacts from many, many years ago. It makes history come alive. Museums are one of my favorite things!

History is Fascinating

I think I'd much rather visit a museum. I enjoy experiencing the various historical aspects of our time here on earth, and I find that sort of stuff fascinating to learn about. Game reserves are entertaining, I'm sure, but I don't think they'd provide me with the same sort of fulfillment that a museum would.

History

I would rather bring my kids to visit the museum because there, they can learn the history of the past and ancient artifacts. Although some people find that museum is a plain boring place, I would rather stay indoors where there is air condition, less crowd and to look at awesome things that I myself had never came across either. Increase history knowledge and to know the story behind them.

Lot of things to learn

Museum has plenty of things to learn. So you can always find something new. And often they keep on adding stuff into it. So it's fun to be in museum. If there are some guides telling you about stuff. That can be one good experience as well. But it all comes down to how you choose to learn from there onwards. So on that points museum is better.

I'm an history nerd.

I love nature, not going to lie. But my main interest lies with history, therefore I must pick a museum.

While game reserves rely on bonding with nature and experiencing first hand the beauty of animals and our world, museums are more about acquiring raw knowledge about topics, and that simply appeals more to me. I want to learn, I want to acquire knowledge, even more so if it is historical.

This just align with my interests much more.

More options

There are more options about what to learn about and study at museums. There are museums about a million topics and game reserves only offer one thing.

Both matter.

I mean, if I have the choice to visit a legendary museum or a stunning reserve, I'd mostly likely go to the museum, there's things from history that you cannot find anywhere else and it's really worth it to see such important memories. Wild life is great on it's own and it's definitely more thrilling and can be a great experience, however in a museum you can improve your self culturally and study fascinating stuff.

Museums preserve history

I have always liked museums. I would walk around reading plaques and trying to imagine persons who were using certain displayed items, times in which they lived, what were their hopes and fears...going to a museum for me is almost like reading a good book.

airconditioned

I like museums a lot more because they are cleaner and are more comfortable. I get why a reserve would be a lot more interesting to some, but I'm not really the outdoors type of person and would rather just go somewhere indoors if I can. I am also more interested in the interior designs of specific museums a lot more than I am of the wildlife since I feel like they all pretty much look the same anyway.

Peaceful

I like visiting a museum as it makes me feel comfortable and at peace. It has so much to learn of. Visiting a game reserve is also fun but I find visiting a museum enjoyable as I can see so many artifacts that were preserved. It is good to see how we started and came to this point by the help of our history.

I have been to numerous museums but I had been to 1 game reserve only. It's actually an open safari zoo in Thailand. Our vehicle went inside the savannah where the wild animals are roaming. More than a hundred giraffes, so many birds and other animals. It was such a great experience to feel that we were communing with wild animals. It would be fantastic if I can be in a game reserve in Kenya because I know that animals there are wild and the reserve is a nature park. With museums, it is also interesting but it will surely pale in comparison with the game reserve where the animals are real.

If I choose one of them? I prefer visit the museum, because it will teach the children about the past of one society. It will teach the children how, the previous civilization works, and realize how it impact our modern day of human, today. Most of the youth today, looking for the answers, in the past, like how their ancestors manage to survive, and how they lived, That's the common questions of youth, today.

for me i like the both of them love to see actually animal on forest moving around it would be a great experience for me to try it and like if i have a chance to feed them i would love to do it. also in going to a museum specially dinosaur museum is one of my bucket to visit at least once in a life time i can see near me a fossil or a skeletal structure of a dinosaur. and reading some stories behind those fossil and skeletal structure remains.

Honestly, do I have to pick? Because I thoroughly enjoyed both. However, I do seek different experiences when visiting a game reserve compared to a museum. With visiting a museum, I'm in the mood to soak up arts and culture. While simultaneously attempting to learn some history on past lives. With a game reserve, I'm looking to interact with wildlife along with seeing them in their natural habitats. So for me, both can be equally fulfilling.

If I have to choose one that will be the game reserve. Who wouldn't want see those animals in action? I still want to see some wildlife alive and roaming in there natural habitat. As one of my teacher said " tell me and I might forget, show me and I might remember but involved me and I will learn." Interactions with wild life will be much fulfilling and will be unforgettable experience for me.

I would rather visit the museum. The nature preserve reminds me of how man has destroyed the natural habitats of animals, but the museum reminds me of the good in mankind and how we can express ourselves with art and connect with one another. I love and respect animals, but watching them run up to the cars begging for food is kind of sickening for me, and I have seen this happen when driving through nature preserves. The museum is a much more enlightening and transcendental place for me.

I will prefer to visit a museum. What people see in the game reserve, you can still have the opportunity of seeing most of the animals on satellite television. If you visit a museum you will have the opportunity of a life time to see all historical things of the past about your country, community, wars fought, first human beings, war implement of the past and so on. You learn more of things of the past than when you visit a game reserve.

Some museums are quite of boring I rather prefer visiting a game reserve, for example, there is one place in Thailand called The Tiger Kingdom where you can interact with tigers from all ages and sizes. How awesome is that? I have wanted to do something like that. The safari is a great experience where you can interact with animals but always with care and following the rules of the place, there are some safaris where you can go on your own car watching the animals besides you.

I like to visit national parks and wild life reserves. I like to watch animals in theri natural safari. IN museum you can learn about past, about the great things that existed, however, contents in the museum are dead, wild life in the reserve is so alive. Jubgle safari is an experiebce of your life time.

I've never been to a game reserve so this time around I would love to visit one instead of going to a museum. In fact the museum is quite accessible here and I haven't step foot inside the museum for years! It must be cool to see the animals in their natural habitat, well sort of and to just have that live experience to cherish. I would consider a reserve and perhaps the advent of the internet has downplayed the museum hype since just about any piece of history can be found online as well.

I agree with you partially. But what's your take on the animal's privacy that it is being breached but the human presence? Don't you think that they will get started with humans there? Or you think that this is all a bunch of fuss and there is really no reason for concern?

I would only seek to go to the museum in order to get accustomed with ones origin and culture. Museums are bank of history, ancient and recent ones but my pick would be on the ancient ones as I'm not opportune to have lived during those times.

Getting to know ones roots is very important because it will teach you things that you would never know that happened until you are told.

I have been to a sort of game reserve where we rode on a vehicle with metal screen to make it safe in case a wild animal would try to harass us. The beasts like the tiger and lion seemed to be in their natural habitat although the place was just man-made. The birds were cool and they were free to fly although they don’t leave the reservation because of the free lunch every day.
