Museums are some of the most important cultural institutions in the world. They showcase both new and veteran artists, and are a place to celebrate art in its many forms. Whether you consider yourself a museum person or not, there are just some that will truly take your breath away. Here are the top three that you absolutely have to see in your lifetime.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art
This museum is located on the Upper East Side of New York City and is the biggest museum in all of the US. From ancient art to classic costumes and modern paintings, the Met has it all. The permanent collection has 17 curatorial departments, so chances are you will find something to enjoy.
Nation Air And Space Museum
This museum may seem like only a place for people who love science, but the way they display their collections is truly outstanding and really accessible. The best part is that it’s free since it’s a Smithsonian museum in Washington, D.C.
The Art Insitute of Chicago
This museum is famously home to a collection of 68 Thorne Miniature Rooms, which are perfectly small scaled structures that show European and American interiors from the 13th-20th century. These structures are meticulous and absolutely stunning.
We went to the Art Institute of Chicago today and it was so much fun! We went and saw my favorite! The Thorne Miniature Rooms. There's just something about seeing these tiny period pieces that makes me feel nostalgic. #artinstituteofchicago #museum #hangingwithmykid #thorneminiaturerooms #familyvacation
