Favorite museums

What are your fave ones?

I like the following plus some of the highlighted art pieces:

Neue Gallery (Woman in Gold by Klimt)
Rijksmuseum (Night Watch by Rembrandt)
Van Gogh
The MET (Egyptian tombs)
MoMa (Starry Night by Van Gogh)
Louvre (Mona Lisa, Winged Victory, The Death of Marat)
Art Gallery of New South Wales
Bilbao Guggenheim
Future World at ArtScience Museum in Singapore

Interesting ones I’ve visited are the Museum of Sex in NYC and Museum of Broken Relationships in LA (I would love a local version!!!).

My ultimate favorite is the Aguinaldo Musuem in Baguio because it was wonderfully curated and the original Philippine flag lives there!

I don’t often go to museums, but among the few I’ve visited, my favorite is the Cup Noodle Museum in Yokohama! My favorite part was creating our own cup noodles. I also plan to visit the one in Osaka someday. :pleased:

Chicago Art Institute. Very diverse and madami laging “visiting pieces”. There was a time yung bedroom ni Van Gogh (which he painted thrice and housed in 3 different museums) were exhibited. Ganda.

Meron din museum na maganda sa London pero sobrang laki nakaka overwhelm. You have to spend at least a day.

Museo Pambata’s nice for kids too.

(ps - I liked renting those recorders sa museums. pag nagtitipid, sunod ka sa isang group na may tour guide :rofl:)

Museum of Modern Art in NYC :heartpump:

Anne Frank House. Visited twice, same feels.

Neanderthal Museum. Didnt realize that Neanderthal man is German :v:

Ayala Museum :heart:

Not really a museum museum, but La Sagrada and those palaces/castles that take me back to the middle ages feels.

Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum - Picasso and Monet collections

Miraikan (Tokyo) - humanoid robot Asimo. Official museum name is National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation.

Meiji-mura Museum (Nagoya) - preserved Meiji-era houses and buildings similar to Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar

Denver Art Museum (Colorado) - native American Art, can’t forget those large totem poles!

National Art Gallery of Singapore - Southeast Asian art. Tip: visit the Smoke and Mirrors cafe at the roofdeck and get an amazing view of Marina Bay Sands.


Tip: If you have several days to spend in Tokyo and love to visit museums, I recommend getting the Grutt Pass which gives you discounted or free access to all museums, aquariums and zoos.

Mona (Museum of Old and New Art) in Hobart, Tasmania (DW’s vision and backstory fascinate me)
Nero in Amsterdam (it’s so much fun :hyper: )
Lenbachhaus in Munich (I enjoy expressionism and it houses a big collection of the works of Der Blaue Reiter)
Albertina in Vienna (Dürer’s Feldhasen, Egon Schiele—enough said (for me at least); and when I was there, they were exhibiting Keith Haring’s work)
