The objects are the fundamental part of a museum and their related collections. Therefore, their importance requires careful presentation and explication. The objects should, in general, be exhibited in a proper environment, so as to transmit precise information and sensations to the visitor. The visitor, through observation and consequent critical elaboration, should experience the sensation of being absorbed into the reality represented by the object, e.g., to feel what is was to live in its time period and in the working environment in which it was created.
