Museums are a weird form of culture. They used to be very popular some decades ago, but somehow they got less and less popular as time got by. In recent years, museums have gained in popularity again, leading to increases in admissions and tourism. But since there’s so many museums around, it might be best to just look out for the ones that transcend the norm and are really, really good. Here’s a couple of the best museums out there, just in case you’re planning a city trip somewhere.
Natural History Museum (London)
I mean, we pretty much all expected this one to make the list, right? It has a giant blue whale skeleton hanging from its ceiling. If that won’t impress people, I don’t know what will.
American Museum of Natural History (New York)
If you’ve heard of the nearly complete T-rex skeleton – this is the museum it’s at. It’s a fairly expensive museum to gain admission to, but it’s honestly one of the best in the world. And the only one where you can see a proper T-rex skeleton, so I guess it has that going for it.
