I am in love with the Centre Pompidou in Paris, its just so cool, and I love the plaza and area around it.

The V&A is a wonderful institution and realy does do exhibitions for everyone.

I also like the exhibitions in the Barbican.

Well, I'm not going to say that the museums of Madrid are the best, but at least we have ones of the most important.

Museo del Prado.


Inside:
Las Meninas of Velázquez

La maja desnuda of Goya


Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza


Museo de Arte Moderno Reina Sofia


Inside:
Guernica of Picasso


Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofia Museums form the called Art Triangle in Madrid.
There are more, but they are the most known.

Musée d'Orsay in Paris is highly underrated. Some of the best impressionism works are housed there.

yeah, so true! .. and the building itself -wether you like or not Gae Aulenti's minimalistic and cubic rehabilitation- is noteworthy too...











it houses several wonders by Van Gogh, Manet or Paul Gauguin..

Personally, I really enjoyed the visit of the Tate Modern in London and the Guggenheim in Bilbao. About Ancient civilization, my best experience has been the Pergamonmuseum in Berlin, where you can find in one piece both the temple of Pergamon (Pergame) and the huge Ishtar Gate from Babylon. That museum is really out of dimensions !

I also agree about your comments about the Musée d'Orsay, however I won't say it's underrated. Few museums are as known worldwide as Orsay. The Louvre paintings collection ends around the 1850's. Everything between the 1850's and the 1920's are in Orsay, and we are talking about the best period in French painting. So no wonder that museum is outstanding.

My favourite collections at the Louvre are the huge paintings from the beginning of the 19th century from Gericault and Delacroix : Paintings such as "Freedom guiding the people" or "the raft of the Meduse" are truely outstanding. I also like the visit of the basement from the Medieval castle of the Louvre. And of course the Egyptian collection and the Greek statues which are really a lot of fun to visit.

Metropolitan - I'll agree that the Musee d'Orsay is not underrated amongst a certain collection of art-viewing people. However, much of the world is likely ignorant even as to its existence.

One of the best is the Albright Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo NY. It is not well known to tourists. But Art officios know it as having one of the best collections of contemporary art in the world. (and it has a very nice building too).

The National Palace Museum in Taipei is most-visited art museum in Taiwan and Asia. It has antique Chinese imperial artwork and treasures that are world’s most famous, rarest and largest collections - which most of the collections were collected by ancient emperors (from 960 to 1911), and encompasses over 8,000 years of art history from the Neolithic age to the 21st century - is often compared to leading Western institutions like the Louvre and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Southern Branch of National Palace Museum is to be characterized as a “museum of Asian art and culture” that will primarily collect artefacts and relics from all parts of Asia. It is expected that test-operation of Southern Branch can commence at the end of 2015.
