The world is filled with many great museums. Here in the United States some of the best museums in the world bring in visitors by the millions.....enchanting, entertaining, and educating all of us. Close to my home, the Toledo Museum of Art usually ranks in the Top Ten in USA art museums. For years it has been the country's leader in per/capita attendance. (It is a wonderful museum.)
But.....I have favorites that are not in my area. Included are the three museums in Chicago that are rated very high.....the Field Museum of Natural History, The Art Institute, and the Museum of Science & Industry (my favorite museum). I also like some of the smaller Great Lake's oriented museums, such as the Lake Superior Shipwrecks Museum and the Great Lakes Museum in downriver Detroit.
When I finally wander into Washington, DC, I already know I will be in love with some of the museums in our great capitol city. This Summer I plan on getting down to Cincinnati to the Underground Railroad Museum. Another must-go on my list is the Holocaust Museum.
How about you? Favorite museums? Plans to go?
What say you?
