Let's not forget Chicago's great museums:

The Art Institute of Chicago: one of the "great" Art museums in the world


The Field Museum: housing Sue


The Museum of Science and Industry: large, interactive museum, with many different exhibits with almost all kinds of machinery and technology, including the Apollo 8 capsule, a U-505, and the Pioneer Zephyr.



The Shedd Aquarium: the largest indoor aquarium in the world


The Adler Planetarium: first planetarium built in the western hemisphere

I would also add the Mexican Anthropology Museum which has the best collection of pre-Columbian artifacts in the world. Also I can't say enogh about the Art Institute of Chicago.

To be completely honest, I'd say the results of this are a bit of a joke, when they don't reflect reality. How was one of the greatest museums in the world - The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City - excluded?

museum of art? Thats a gallery isnt it? I would personally put them in different categories but everyone else seems to have included galleries as well in their choices

No, it's not a gallery. It's has one of the greatest, and biggest collections of art in the world. Art is not only paintings, they have everything imaginable, including a whole temple from Egypt.

I can't fathom how it can not be included. It's a shame. It's definately in the Top 5 in the world.

Louvres is the best overall
British Museum is superior in antiquity area.

The Louvre is definitely the biggest Museum in the World, by its size, by the quality and quantity of its collection, by its image (through movies, books....).
Some museums may match the Louvre on some aspects (beauty of the building, major art work, more paintings, more Egyptian stuffs, more sculpture) but none can match with the Louvre from a general point of view.

The winner of this contest is:

VATICAN MUSEUMS

From the International Rough Guide:

"A fifteen-minute walk from St Peter's (follow the signs out from the north side of the piazza), the only part of the Vatican Palace you can visit independently is the Vatican Museums at Viale Vaticano 13 (April–Nov Mon–Sat 8.45am–2.20pm, last exit 3.45pm; rest of year Mon–Sat 8.45am–12.20pm, last exit 1.45pm; €10; closed Sun, holidays and religious holidays, except the last Sunday of each month when admission is free) – QUITE SIMPLY, THE LARGEST,RICHEST, MOST COMPELLING AND PERHAPS MOST EXHAUSTING MUSEUM COMPLEX IN THE WORLD. If you have found any of Rome's other museums disappointing, the Vatican is probably the reason why: so much booty from the city's history has ended up here, from both classical and later times, and so many of the Renaissance's finest artists were in the employ of the pope, that not surprisingly the result is a set of museums so stuffed with antiquities as to put most other European collections to shame.

As its name suggests, the Vatican Palace actually holds a collection of museums on very diverse subjects – displays of classical statuary, Renaissance painting, Etruscan relics, Egyptian artefacts, not to mention the furnishings and decoration of the palace itself. There's no point in trying to see everything, at least not on one visit. Once inside, you have a choice of routes, but the only features you really shouldn't miss are the Raphael Stanze and the Sistine Chapel. Above all, decide how long you want to spend here, and what you want to see before you start; you could spend anything from 45 minutes to the better part of a day here, and it's easy to collapse from museum fatigue before you've even got to your most important target of interest. Be conservative – the distances between different sections alone can be vast and very tiring."


The only museum in the world that has not only a collection of masterpieces, but the same museum is THE masterpiece of italian Reinassance and Baroque.
Sistina Chapel, Raphael Rooms, Vatican Gardens, Michelangelo's dome and more and more and more.....
