"A museum is a non-profit making, permanent institution in the service of society and of its development, and open to the public, which acquires, conserves, researches, communicates and exhibits, for purposes of study, education and enjoyment, material evidence of species and their environment."

Within these categories many museums specialize further, e.g. museums of modern art, local history, aviation history, agriculture or geology.
