The meaning of "Museum" in various phrases and sentences

Q: O que significa There is a small museum where visitors can ‘examine’ a collection of old Colman's posters an exhibition explaining the history of mustard.

I chose 'watch', but answer was 'examine'.

Why the answer is examine?? What’s difference between examine and watch?
A: The verb “watch” is only used for things that move or change, like tv, movies, people, etc. So you can’t “watch” posters. That’s why “examine” is the better answer. Also, “examine” means to look at something closely/carefully, whereas “watch” just means to look at something over a period of time.
Q: O que significa I’ve been in more museums than I like to admit.?
A: "I like to admit" means 'in general'....

They're both almost the same though. Use whatever you're more comfortable with..

Synonyms of "Museum" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre he is telling about the museum e he is talking about the museum ?
A: The first one uses "tell" with an object (someone) which is unnatural. Tell is almost always used with a person, like tell me or tell him or tell them, etc. The difference in nuance is that "tell" is closer in meaning to "explain" than talk.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre in the museum e at the museum ?
A: pretty much the same except 'at the museum' could mean you are just outside about to go inside.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre I don't know where is this museum e I don't know where this museum is ?
A: “I don’t know where this museum is” is correct. “I don’t know where is this museum” doesn’t make sense. I’m not sure why, but I can just sense when something is correct or incorrect, because English is my native language.

Anyway, where is this ship? is correct.
Depending on the situation, “Where is this ship, anyway?” could also be correct.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre The museum regulations do not permit the uses of flash photography inside the gallery. e The museum regulations do not permit the use of flash photography inside the gallery. ?
A: @H-oon
"Uses" in your example mean that there are multiple ways something can be used. For example, there are many uses of water: you can drink and clean with it. In your example it is implied that there are multiple uses for flash photography and all of them are not allowed.
For the second sentence, "use" is used as a present tense action. In your example, it refers to the action of taking pictures with flash. So it means the act of taking pictures with flash is not allowed.
"Uses" can also be a present tense action but it is used to talk about someone else. For example, he uses this pencil for drawing or she uses this type of paper.
To summarize, the first sentence with uses means there are multiple ways to use something and all of them are not allowed. The second sentence means the overall action is not allowed.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre We've come to see the museum. e We came to see the museum. ?
A: Also, we've come to see the museum indicates that you are at the museum already (present tense). For instance if you are at the entrance of the museum and someone asks you the rather silly question, "Why are you here?", you would say "We've come to see the museum:. Another example would be, if you went to the hospital and someone asked you, why are you here? You could answer "I've come to see my grandmother." But if you weren't at the place itself, you would say "We came to see the museum" or "I came to see my grandmother."

Other questions about "Museum"

Q: " he has visited that museum for 4 times, and today will be his 5 th time visiting there."

I want to make a question out of that sentence whose answer would be "his 5th time."

"What is the ordinality of this time for his today's visiting the museum ?"
A: I usually use the first one, but I also hear the second one often.

You could say: "What number of times will today's rollerskating be for him?"
But, to be honest, that can sound a little confusing to some people. In most situations, I think it's best to ask "How many times has he ____ before?" and the person will tell you the ordinality of that activity. If they don't tell you the ordinality, you can ask "What number of times...?" It will be less confusing in like this.
Q: Where can I buy museum pass ?
soa natural?
A: Add an article.

It's more natural if you say "Where can I buy a museum pass?" or "Where can I buy the museum pass?"
Q: I enjoy going to museum. There are many special exhibitions in the museum. Especially i love a water painting, because it was expressed by various colors. soa natural?
A: I enjoy going to museums because there are many special exhibitions. I especially love the water paintings, illustrated by multitude of colours.

I would change museum and painting to plurals unless you are speaking about a specific museum or a particular painting. I would also recommend joining the first and second sentence as this sounds more natural.
Q: We get free museum memberships, so we can watch a lot of famouse artworks. And we also can meet diverse people who coming at the museum. soa natural?
A: Saying "so we can look at" makes more sense than "so we can watch" because "watch" is used to talk about continuously looking at something that is changing like a video. You don't need the "e" on "famous". You should turn "people who coming" into "people who are coming" and use "to the museum" instead of "at the museum". Hope this helped.
Q: He entered the museum through a new door. soa natural?
A: He entered the museum through the new door: if the door is new. He entered the museum through another door: if it is a different door than the one he used before.
