Museum Figurines

The word ‘museum’ derives via the Latin language from the Greek word mouseion, a place or a temple devoted to the Muses, the Greek goddesses of arts.
The Mouseion of Alexandria (Egypt) lies at the basis of the Latin word museum in its current meaning: this Mouseion was a training centre where scholars were excused so they could devote themselves completely to the study of the writings. During the Renaissance the form we still know today arose: a building containing a collection of paintings, sculptures and other art objects.
