    The Perfecct Date

    I've only been to a big museum once in my life. Most of the time I stuck in the dinosaurs section because I was little and didn't care about anything else. but that was such a mistake. I do love history and my back up for a future career would be as a history teacher in a high...

    Every time I visit a new place I arrive with a

    list of museums I have to see. The weirdest museum I have been too is probably the marionette museum in Vienna. My top three favorite art museums are the Louvre, the MoMA in New York, and the Denver Art Museum. The last museum I went to was the Portland Art Museum. The museum...

    The Damascus Room at the Cincinnati Art Museum

    is still and beautiful and warm. The Miniatures at the Museum of the Art Institute of Chicago is fantastical and whimsical. The Albuquerque Museum of Art has a magnificent design by which meandering brings quiet joy.

    I would love to visit museums in other

    countries! I believe everyone/everything has a story. It will be amazing if I get to know more! It does expand my life horizon. Sigh. sadly. My country museums are so bored. >.< It is like when you are very excited to go there, but it disappoints you. :(

    The Holocaust Museum in Washington,

    DC is the most memorable and haunting museum experience I've ever had. I can still picture in my head the mountain of shoes from all the victims.

    Italy

    Last september I went to Paris and I had a blast exploring the museums there- and even walking around the city felt like being in a huge museum. It was awesome! I loved the cluny, the louvre, the marmottan, the orsay, the rodin museum... and all of the beautiful sculptures in the...

    History is like, in a way,

    traveling into the past. I really love to learn about African American history and all about slavery times and the "Underground Railroad". Which actually isn't an underground railroad!

    Alone

    This may sound weird, but my favorite way to explore a new museum is to go alone, in the middle of a weekday if possible. That way I get minimal crowds, and can devote all my attention to the displays.A while back I visited the Tennessee State Museum that way; all alone, on a...

    The J. Paul Getty

    Museum is the biggest one I've ever been too. It is quite large, and the journey through there is long enough to make you hungry so stop off for a sandwich. :-)
