Top Tips On The Best Museums in the World

Here’s what our Mobal Members had to say on ‘Which Is The Best Museum In The World’.

 

The Louvre, Paris (website)

Best museum? Well, if we talk about the quantity and quality of their collections, definitely the Louvre would have my vote; but if BEST could also mean the museum with a very nice permanent collection and the most visitor-friendly personnel and atmosphere (it even has individual lockers and a nice lunch area where you can have your lunch, if you were wise enough to bring it with you), them the Glyptothek in Copenhagen will definitely beat all others.

The Louvre, definitely. But check out the new Museum of Natural History in Salt Lake City if you’re in the ‘hood. It is really spectacular. The architecture is inspired by our awesome canyonlands throughout Utah, and the building is so eco-friendly, it runs on barely 10 cents a day (I may be a bit off on the exact figure).

I also agree with the Kremlin nomination, only spent 2 hours there, but hope to return for more. For autos, Mercedes Benz, Stutgart. For WWII(aircraft) the Royal Air Museum and the American Air Museum, Duxford UK. For ART, Le Louvre,Paris

Ed Gaven

While I love the Louvre, the Shanghai Museum is a spectacular success in all ways: the quality of the (millennia of) Chinese art displayed, the ways it is shown to best advantage of each piece, the good descriptions, the accessibility (yes, wheelchairs), the availability of cafes and restrooms at each level, and the overall beauty and elegance of the structure.

Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum, Virginia (website)

My favorite, and that of most folks who are fascinated by airplanes, is the Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum in northern Virginia. It’s one part of the Smithsonian Museum. It houses: one of the space shuttles; space capsules; a super-sonic transport; the Enola Gay (which dropped an A-bomb); and dozens of other airplanes (military, civilian, experimental).It also features IMax theaters and a museum store. There is a $15 parking fee but no individual admission charges.

Anthropology Museum, Mexico City (website)

I study museums around the world. I especially love the Anthropology Museum in Mexico City, Te Papa in Wellington New Zealand, the Museum of London, and the Apartheid Museum, Johannesburg. More quirky, the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland, and the Evita Museum, Buenos Aires.

The Henry Ford, Michigan (website)

The Henry Ford in Dearborn Michigan. The museum and Greenfield Village make up America’s greatest history attraction. Together they are called The Henry Ford.

  • Diane Rice says:

    How could you possibly not include the Vatican Museum? Other than the Louvre, it’s the only other possibly contender. The British Museum & V&A in London are spectacularly good, but if I had to choose only one BEST, it would be the Louvre.
