Man's comment card echoes thoughts of many at art museum

For some, a trip to the art museum means and experience filled with wonder and majesty. For others, it is the most boring way to spend a day, and that's the sentiment that one man expressed on a comment card of a London-area museum.

Reddit user mar480 posted an image of a comment card he found at the Tate Modern in London, which read, "My wife made me come here, and I'm not convinced this isn't a joke."

Other Reddit users chimed in with experiences of their own at art museums.

"When I was in the Saatchi Gallery a few months back, there was one exhibit which was literally just boxes and ladders laid out to look like it was an exhibit, which was waiting to be put together," Reddit user Gisschace wrote. "I am pretty sure the artist was taking the (expletive) with that one."

Another user said that the user should "frame the note, and boom, you got yourself another piece of modern art!"

Not all users were against the piece.

One man wrote that "some people would argue that since it provoked a reaction of emotion," -- even though negative -- "it must be good art."
