Finding Americas Best Art Museums
When traveling the country on our motorcycles, one of our favorite things to do is to travel to some of the largest art museums on the road. In the past 5 years we have seen 12 of the best art museums in the nation. While we won’t go into specifics comparing the Met Museum vs. The Art Institue of Chicago, we would more like to give an overview of some of the ways that we go about planning our trips.
When you make the decision to take in art museums you will certainly want to know which ones are going to be the best. There is no reason for you to pay for admission to an art museum that you are not going to enjoy. It is always best to take some time to learn about what the art museum is going to have in it as well. At least then you will know if the museum even has something that will interest you in the first place. With the internet being so easily accessible you will see that it has never been easier to log on and see what different museums have to offer.
As you start to search for Americas best art museums you will see that the internet is the best place to look. This is the fastest way for you to get the information that you are looking for. Many times you will even see a top 10 list of museums. Lists like this are not hard to come by at all and they will offer you a great deal of information. This should always be your starting point when you are searching for the best.
Some of the greatest art that we have seen is not at actual museums but it is outside. The walls of the famous “City as Canvas” display in New York, which depict art created by paint sprayers, is one of the coolest things that one can see. Great thing is that many of this stuff has now made it inside of today’s top museums.
Another way to find some of the best art museums in America would be to carry out a search related to the city or state that you are visiting. Most of the time if you look up a city or a state you will be able to find the chamber of commerce site. Once you are there you will be able to look for a tab that talks about points of interest. Within this tab you will see that there could be art museums listed. After you find these you will be able to look them up online and find out as much information as possible.
Are you planning on staying in a hotel when you get to your location? If so then you are going to be at a great advantage. Staff at the hotel will have access to all of the sites and major tourist attractions. If you are having a hard time finding something to do, or an art museum to visit, you will simply want to visit the hotel staff. They will be very helpful and they can always link you to some of the best attractions out there.
Never forget to read through reviews related to the museums that you find. Again, these are very easy to find if you look on the internet. These are necessary to help you determine what others thought about the museum before you go. It will also be necessary for you to find out other specific information about the museum such as if they have a cafeteria, what you may have to pay to go in, the friendliness of the staff and if the location is kid friendly. All of this information can be very helpful as you try to decide which one of the best art museums you want to visit.
