10. VISIT THE MUSEUM OF NATURE AND MAN

How many times have you wanted to go to a museum or a gallery just to see art and have an insight into the lives of the people in history through archaeological discoveries but wasn't able to because you were just too busy to or you just kept procrastinating till you ran out of time?
