Visiting museums, galleries and theaters can give one a new perspective and outlook in life. Looking at artistic pictures, paintings, artifacts, sculptures can give life a brand new dimension that you’ve never seen before.
It’s not possible to visit a place without delving a little bit into the historical value of the place and the best place to find evidence of its history is the museum. There are many top world-class museums everywhere in the world. For example, there’s the world-class Cleveland Museum of Art whereby there’s continuous upgrading to accommodate the stream of visitors to the museum. And of course, if you ever step foot into Detroit, don’t forget to visit the Detroit Institute of Arts. There, you can check out many intriguing Ancient Arts collection especially the Frankenthaler’s “The Bay". The Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco is another not-to-be-missed museum because there’s more than 70,000 pieces of arts and images there; the most popular ones in the museum features works by Rodin and Rembrandt.
If you’re a fan of Italian artists and painters, you’ll fine a huge collection of work from Italian artists at Galleria Delgi Uffizi. The art museum features works from famous Italian artists like Botticelli, Veronse and Giorgione. Of course, Russia used to be really famous for its creative painters and artists too, for instance, some of the most popular works are housed in the Hermitagae Museum in Russia. This is where there are approximately 2,000 holdings that contain more than 3,000,000 pieces of world masterpieces.
Who can forget France when we’re talking about museums and world-class art? Musee du Louvre is another art museum that is surely not-to-be-missed if you visit France. This is the museum where the Mona Lisa, The Raft of Medusa, Venus de Milo and the Victory of Samothrace is housed. Therefore, your visit to France is not complete without visiting this art museum. We’re talking about truly renowned art pieces here, not to be seen anywhere else. The visit to this art museum will definitely be worth your time.
Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid, Spain, is also known as Museo del Prado. It’s, by far, not the largest nor the most exquisite art museum in the world but this museum contains some of the best art pieces to be ever created in this world! Museo del Prado contains some wisely selected art pieces. While you’re there, why not pick some extremely unique greeting cards (with smaller versions of some world class art pieces) to send home to your friends and family?
The National Gallery of Art in the Washington, D. C. , is also not to be missed. In fact, you’ll be astounded with the effort they put into making their website coordinate with the design of the actual museum. The National Gallery of Art website is one of the most extensive and aesthetically pleasing and easy-to-use art gallery websites that I have ever visited. You can go on a virtual tour by visiting the museum’s website before you decide to pop on over to the museum.
