What is "culture" if not museums?

Jump to last reply

More and more I am seeing posts from people planning a trip who say they want to immerse in the cultures of the countries they are visiting - but then say they don't want to visit museums or major tourist sights.

Granted there are many other things that make up culture - family structure, education and healthcare systems, workplace habits and regulations, mores and habits, food and dining customs - and the arts: theater, music, ballet, galleries etc. But many of these are discoverable only by spending significant time in any place.

I'm at a loss as to how these people are defining culture. Do they mean trying to live like a local (difficult when you're in a new city/country every other day)? Are they talking just about cafes and pubs? Or?????
