Top Ten Museums

The Top Ten

1 The Louvre - Paris

The most amazing museum ever! It is super-elegant. A must-visit museum for art lovers. It is located in the famous light-city, capital of France. You have to visit the museum before you die.

2 The Metropolitan Museum of Art - New York

Beautiful Museum. It has a wide range of art, all very important pieces to our culture. definitely worth checking out and a time well spent.

loved it could live there a be happy

3 The Field Museum - Chicago

4 Uffizi Gallery - Florence, Italy
5 Vatican Museums - Vatican City
6 National Gallery - London
7 Museo Nacional del Prado - Madrid, Spain
8 United States Holocaust Memorial Museum - Washington, D.C.
9 Museum of Science and History - Chicago

There is a tornado, inside the museum! I mean come on. You get to stand in a moving vortex of wind and water. Its amazing! They also have an electric show every 5 minutes! - CatnissNevergreen

10 Museum of Fine Arts - Boston

Wonderful special exhibitions, especially ripe with Impressionists. Most unexpected was the Guitar exhibition narrated by James Taylor and featured guitars and their sounds from centuries ago up to Hendrix as well as other celebs. Fun and illuminating. - mgenet

I once lived near Boston and I've been to all of the special exibitions and I've seen Claude Monets lily pads and Whistlers mother and all kinds of other awesome stuff! I've probably been there 9 or 10 times! - moose4life19

The Contenders

11 Acropolis Museum - Athens,Greece
12 Rijksmuseum - Amsterdam, Netherlands
13 Potala Palace - Lhasa,Tibet
14 Guggenheim Museum - New York
15 Salvador Dali Museum - St. Petersburg, Fla.
16 The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art - Kansas City

The Nelson offers up a rich span of periods, worldwide cultures, excellently preserved, and a great the diversity of traveling shows, which are all quintessential displays of controversial humane and inhumane reflections of our humanity on this planet. Pretty damn good for a little cowtown surrounded by farmers.

17 Smithsonian American Art Museum - Washington, D.C.
18 Egyptian Museum - Cairo, Egypt
19 Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) - New York City
20 The State Hermitage Museum - St. Petersburg, Russia

The Louvre is overrated. The Hermitage is more beautiful and has more items in it and there is more variety.
