Learning is not a stage of life, rather it should be a lifelong process that helps us improve ourselves and our minds as human beings. Whether you are a serial degree-earner, someone who attends every class that you come across, or someone who simply enjoys watching educational videos on the internet, learning should always find a way to fit into your life.
But if you don't have the time or money to pursue extra education or simply don't like structured education, you need to find learning that is flexible and fun. Visiting a museum can be a great way to ensure that you are always learning and many museums offer cheap or free admission, leaving you no excuses not to visit.
