Duolingo English Test Writing Sample Answer (1)

A few days ago I saw someone asking for a writing sample of this question below. It is not an easy question, as the topic is not very common. However, as an IELTS teacher I know that museums is a topic that is tested from time to time. Questions in DET are actually similar to IELTS. 

Here are some useful ideas for a 50-word writing question (taken from my e-book Quick Guide to DET Writing, which will be released soon)

Introduction: Nowadays, museums have become popular tourist destinations. Tourists visit museums for several reasons, which will be explained below.
