Walker Art Center

The Walker in Minneapolis is one of the best modern arts museums in the USA!
The new expansion is incredible.

The best universal museum will be the Museum Island in Berlin.
Highlights are the Pergamon Altair, The original Gates of Babylon and the bust of Nefertiri.

I'm going to throw in one more museum that I have just visited - the Natural History Museum in London, with a huge assortment of exhibits from dinosaurs to environmentalism and stuffed birds.

^ Natural History Museum and next door Science Museum are great.

My best though are the British Museum and the Louvre.

This was the concept for the new Guggenheim in NY, but it's been scrapped.

my top 5 in no particular order
1)louvre
2)hermitage
3)british museum
4)prado
5)new acropolis museum in athens

i have no knowledge of asian museums so i did not include any of them .Same goes for african museums.
American museum have a lot of exhibits but they are not old enough like the ones in european museums.
I do not consider "museums" with dinosaurs as real museums,same goes for aquariums.

My top 5 Museums would be...
1) Le Louvre
2) British Museum
3) Hermitage Museum
4) MET New York
5) Kremlim State Museum

Although they certainly don't have as many artworks as the previously mentionned museums, the National Archeological Museum and National Historical Museum in Sofia, Bulgaria, are worth seeing.

NATIONAL HISOTORICAL MUSEUM



NATIONAL ARCHEOLOGICAL MUSEUM



HERE ARE SOME OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE MUSEUMS



















***Bulgaria is the place in Europe, where there is the biggest concentration of Gold and Silver Treasures discovered (Archeology). Unfortunately many other treasures are looted and sold to foreign collections...
