lol. do you really think so? We don't have any general big museums, just small ethnographic museums (the main of which is it currently being expanded and is by itself a museum even if it had no exhibition in it), and it was already awarded as European museum of the year. Of course we are proud of that, because it was a prize to our local culture, more than to the museum, we got two old international prizes in museums and cinema, all due to its culture, rather than venues and fancy stuff. So it can't be on the same list such as the louvre. Those are different things. So, not in a million years I would be pissed of.
i was checking out Egyptian and greek museums. Useful, but not a ranking, well fortunatly, you can't rank stuff like this. Only in number of visitors. So please grow up, will ya?

It lists 34 American Museums and yet fails to mention the Detroit Institute of Art (one of the five largest fine art collections in the U.S.) and the Henry Ford (the largest American History museum in the United States.). It lists two shipwreck museums in Key West, a museum dedicated to the assassination of JFK (despite the fact that the Henry Ford Museum is where you'll find the actual car where JFK was assassinated), and it even lists one museum twice!
This list is not a ranking, nor does it even list the "best museums in the world". It just lists 178 musems in no particular order...
It is just an internet list and doesn't seem all that well researched. Since the advent of the internet we get daily "rankings" of just about anything and everything under the sun of whatever the person whose website it is wants to say.
