Are you visiting U.S.A anytime soon? Or are you already here wondering where to start as far as visiting the best museums is concerned? If you answered yes in either of the two questions, then this article is meant for you. Here is a short list of the top museums that you should not leave without visiting:
If you’re a lover of history, then this museum is for you. Its interactive exhibits such as oral histories, multimedia displays as well as historic artifacts, the National WWII Museum, which is located in New Orleans, Louisiana, makes the American experience of the war look real. In addition, the National WWII Museum features a 4-D film that is called “Beyond the Boundaries” which actually discuses the American war from every aspect. You can be absolutely sure that you’ll leave this place with a comprehensive overview of the war and the involvement of U.S in the global crisis.
The Californian USS Midway Museum that is found in San Diego is among the world’s top maritime museums. If you visit this place, you’ll get the opportunity to step onto the famous 20th century’s longest serving aircraft carrier and you’ll learn about every aspect of life on board a Navy vessel. In fact, you’ll learn about at least 60 different locations aboard and that’s why it’s known as a very informative and interactive experience.
Your visit to New York should not be complete without a visit to American Museum of Natural History, one of the world’s largest museums, which is filled with everything including fossils, Asian mammals, meteorites as well as Native American artifacts and so on. Founded in 1867, the museum is housed on Manhattan’s Upper West Side and it has over 45 exhibits.
Opened in 2012, Chihuly Garden and Glass is completely new to the museum circuit. Since the time it was opened, it has gained worldwide attention mainly for its incredible sculpture garden. Because of its convenient location just few miles from Seattle’s iconic Space Needle, the museum has become the perfect destination for both locals and visitors. So, if you’re visiting Washington, I would strongly recommend that you pay a visit to this Seattle based museum, which is named after a famous glass blower, Dale Chihuly.
The Californian Getty Center, which is located at the center of Los Angeles, specifically in the Brentwood neighborhood, is no doubt picturesque. The Getty Center includes striking gardens that are filled with gorgeous sculptures. The center is where you’ll find the works of many art legends such as Rembrandt and Van Gogh. Simply put, the museum is nothing but a must-see stop in Los Angeles.
It’s anybody’s guess that you’re going to find it hard to decide which museum to visit because they’re not only so many in U.S.A. but they’re also among the best in the world. However, it would be very disappointing if Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum misses in your list if not No 1. The museum is popular for its enormous collection of both air and spacecraft artifacts as well as photographs. It offers an in-depth look into the history of not only aviation, but also spaceflight and planetary science. So, you know what to do if you’re visiting Washington, DC.
