    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. :(

    Museum in Washington DC. I went there when I was in 3rd grade and I instantly fallen in love with modern history and the exhibits from certain time periods. Especially the one where they had Dorothy's ruby red slippers from the Wizard of Oz.

    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...
