GALLERIES V. MUSEUMS
Galleries are like Retail Stores that sell handmade items. They are free to enter and the staff are like sales people.
Museums are spaces that exhibit work that has been scholarly and/or historically proven to be culturally significant. The artwork is not for sale. There is often a fee to enter (The Frist Museum is free for students on Friday nights, 5:00-9:00)
