    Dust And Love

    The treasures most ignore... I stare at it. I know it to well. It's history. Watching my eyes always find them, no matter where they are. Prof of war, prof of art, prof of changes. Of extinction and life. Incredible traces of things one hardly can imagine. It's real though, so...

    I was fortunate enough to live near DC

    for several years. I took advantage of my proximity and spent a lot of time in the Smithsonian. What a great museum. Or, rather, collection of museums. Their are 18 or 19 separate buildings, I think. I went to as many as I could find. They are scattered all over the city. Some...

    Anything old and ancient is

    where you'll find me! Museums are one my favorite places to go to by myself. I love just walking around the museum listening to some classical music just dreaming about what it would of been like to live in that era. What it would have been like to live that life and fall in...

    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. :(

    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...

    Admiring The Past

    In my most recent travels I visited the Brooklyn museum. Typically I enjoy exploring museums alone, but in NYC you're never really alone... As soon as I walked in there was a live band playing, the music filled every inch of the glassed entry way with great acoustics. As for the...

    Beautiful buildings Crammed full of

    knowledge How can you not love to wonder amongst the glass cases or dusty shelves. As I've gotten older I can really appreciate how much we have learnt and discovered. Museums are really our way of showing off, Just how amazing we truly are :)

    Museums

    I like going to the Museums. I think like all the museums for their own uniqueness. But by far the best one that I have seen are Metropolitan in NY, MOMO, in NY, Museum of Natural History, NY, and Philadelphia Museum of Art. There some awesome Museums in Washington DC, and its...

    when I am on my own. I often go on Saturday afternoons after I finish work (I don't work every Saturday). I love to wander around the rooms looking at the exhibits, the pictures and paintings. I also go over to the Musee Carnavalet, which houses the museum of Paris. There's...

    Never With The Right Person

    I love museums of just about any size and type, and enjoy exploring. But I have not found anyone who loves museums in the same way I do. They tend to take their toddlers, or use it as an outing. Some have a check list, a sort of bucket list of places to go and things to see...

    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.

    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...

    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!

    Van Gogh Museum In Amsterdam

    I have been going to this museum for years. When I lived in Holland in the 80s I had an annual pass and went maybe once a month. The museum was arranged chronologically and has a good portion of the artist's work. You can literally see him losing his mind before your eyes. The...
