For me, the most important collection in the world is in the Louvre Museum, Paris.
In classical architecture, I also choose the Louvre.
In modern architecture, I choose the MALBA MUSEUM, in Buenos Aires.
And for the mix of architecture (classical + modern) I choose the new RIO MUSEUM OF ART, in Rio de Janeiro.

MUSEU DE ARTE DO RIO or RIO MUSEUM OF ART - RIO DE JANEIRO

About the museum:

The Rio Museum of Art - or MAR, for Museu de Arte do Rio - offers visitors a multi-faceted vision of the history
of the city and of its social fabric, symbolic life, conflicts, contradictions, challenges and expectations.
The exhibits conjoin the historical and contemporary dimensions of art through short- and long-term shows of
national and international scope. MAR also has the mission of making art a part of public education,
through its Escola do Olhar (literally, School of Vision).

Situated in Praça Mauá, MAR occupies two interconnected buildings with heterogeneous profiles:
the eclectic-style Dom João VI Royal Mansion, which is an official heritage site,
and a neighboring modernist building, originally a rail terminal.
It was opened in 2013 as part of the revitalization of the Rio's port area.

^ Nice. We had that museum in the "Guess the museum" game (see the link in my sig) when it was in the finishing phase of the construction. From your pics I like how it looks at the inside.

I don't think there's anything better currently than Washington DC's Smithsonian.
It is difficult to compare the Smithsonian with most other museums because it is in fact a collection of several different museums within one single institution.

For most museums, they are seperate entities based on their type of collections. For example in France, the Louvre is a completely seperate museum from the Bourget Air museum.

In fact it is difficult to compare any museum with another, which is a good thing, I believe.

Niterói Contemporary Art Museum – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Designed by Oscar Niemeyer, built in 1996, admired by many experts around the world. Considered 'the most futuristic museum of Contemporary Art':

Plus, Fort Tryon in autumn is indescribably beautiful.

Ready for this? If you've studied some art history, you'll find a LOTS of World Class art icons here, in the Pinacoteca di Brera in Milan. I think it's safe to say that it's AT LEAST a top 10 art gallery in the World. Yet, who have heard of it outside of the small world of art scholars? That's a pity!
The Pinacoteca di Brea Museum was created in the early 1800s by Napoleon as the Central Museum for his Reign of Italy, like the Louvre was to France. That's why it contains so many masterpieces of western art. Its collection is composed by some 2000 paintings, all of extremely high quality, but on exhibition at the moment you only find the 400 best paintings, waiting for the project of the Grande Brera to let the World know about this extraordinary museum.

Here are the Pinacoteca di Brera top 30 masterpieces:

1) Antonio Canova, Napoleon as Mars the peacekeeper:



2) Polyptich of Valle Romita by Gentile da Fabriano:




3) The world famous Dead Christ by Mantegna:



4) Cherubins' madonna, by Mantegna:




5) Giovanni Bellini, the Pietas, another iconic painting:




6) The monumental painting of The Preach of Saint Mark at Alexandria, by Gentile and Giovanni Bellini:




7) The portrait of the Earl Antonio Porcia, by Tiziano:



8) Saint Jerome the penitent, a famous painting by Tiziano:




9) The Finding of the body of Saint Mark, by Tintoretto, another world class iconic painting:




10) The Crucifixion by the Bramantino, look at the face in the sun and in the moon, man Bramantino was sooo mysterious and cryptic!




11) The very classy Roseto Madonna, by Bernardino Luini:




12) Polyptich of the Graces by Vincenzo Foppa:




13) Tryptich of Camerino by Carlo Crivelli:




14) The Crowning of the Virgin by Carlo Crivelli:




15) Candeletta Madonna, an extraordinary masterpiece by Carlo Crivelli, soo breathtaking!




16) Santa Maria in Porto by Ercole de' Roberti:




17) One of the best renaissance masterpiece, the Pala montefeltro, Piero della Francesca. I dare to say that this is the Manifesto of Renaissance, one of the top three paintings ever painted during Renaissance. Pure perfection.



18) The marriage of the Virgin, the masterpiece of the early stage of Raphael production, and one of his most iconic paintings




19) Christ at the Column by Bramante, this is another absolute and iconic masterpiece. You'll find no art history book without this painting extensively described in it:




20) Stendardo della Flagellazione, by Luca Signorelli:



21) Supper at Emmaus, Caravaggio, very iconic painting known by everyone, very pop-ish too:




22) By Bramante, there are also the Men at Arms frescoes:




23) Extremely interesting frescoes by Bernardino Luini from the Villa La Pelucca, near Milan:




24 e 25) High renaissance here, Saint Peter and Saint John the Baptist by francesco del Cossa:



26) Crucifixion with the Virgin, by Carlo Crivelli:



27) Ok, no presentation needed here, you probably have already seen this masterpiece printed everywhere...well, it's in Milan. The Kiss, by Francesco Hayez:



28) La Fiumana, the first version of the world famous and iconic painting "The Fourth State" by Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo:



29) Riot in the Galleria, the manifesto of early Futurist art, another cornerstone of development in western art, by Umberto Boccioni:



30) And this Self Portrait by Umberto Boccioni is quite a masterpiece on itself too:




What do you think about it now that you know it? The Pinacoteca di Brera, with all these cornerstone paintings that literally marked the path of Western Art surely deserves to be there in the Olympus of the Great European Museums not to miss IMHO...

Best museum in the world? Hard to say but Hermitage museum in Sankt Peterburg is one of the best in the world for sure.
