Museums in Your City

This include anything from art museums to postage stamp museums. To me, one of the best things for any city is museums. When it comes to history museums of a city, you learn so much that you wouldn't had learned without researching. But actually viewing artifacts and reading of the history is a whole new experience that surpasses Wikipidea-ing it. There is so many museums around the globe that showcases things like fashion, dentistry, entertainment, etc. Lets see what your city offers!

P.S.: I'll be heading to Tampa come Sunday to coincide with our new park opening, so I'll be getting some snaps of our History Center, almost completed Arts Museums, and under construction Children's Museum.

I was afraid to post the simple museums from my city.

Santo Angelo is a south brazilian city with 80.000 inhabitants. It's 303 years old and have a nice history.

1. City Hall with Cathedral and archeological museum - if you look to the base from the towers you'll see some stone boxes, there are the ruins from the old cathedral from 1707.

2. Railsroads and train museums in the old railstation

3. City Museum
