Many museums and historical sites are mainly visited by tourists, not local people. Why is this case? What can be done to attract local people?
It is a commonplace that the majority of museum-goers or historical site visitors are tourists rather than locals. Behind such phenomenon are two predominant motivators, and hopefully some feasible approaches can be adopted.
-goer n. <用以构成复合词> 常去…的人
To commence, tourists’ preference can partly be ascribed to human nature – seekingnovelties. To illustrate, one of their major purposes of travelling is to have a glimpse into thenovel historical and cultural customs, and visiting museums and historical attractions offers easier access to witnessing history. Not surprisingly, those sites are usually put on tourists’ agenda. By stark contrast, it is because the local, from their perspective, have known too much about the culture that they are less likely to gravitate to local museums and historical spots. Another reason is the surging living pressure. In order to stand out, locals have to work non-stop, even burning the midnight oil. Therefore, in their spare time, they may desire a sound rest instead of crowding in the local museums or tourist sites.

To attract more locals, two schemes can be put on the agenda. The first imperative is that local museums and historical sites can hold exhibitions and competitions with different themes on a regular basis. For instance, on Lantern Festival, those historical spots can set lantern riddles based on relevant information displayed in the sites and call on locals to be involved. Immersed in such attractive activity, the local are largely likely to be captivated by their traditions again. Additionally, local educational institutions and businesses can organise young generations to visit museums and historical sites, during which they can relieve the pressure and meanwhile enhance the cultural identity.
