I’m going to tag on here and include the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the LA County Museum of Contemporary Art, the Indianapolis Art Museum (IMA), and the Brooklyn Art Museum to the mix.

By the way, IMA is an amazing institution that has established a remarkable precedence in best practices when it comes to transparency with constituents. Check out their new deaccession database.


One response to “10 Must See Museums in the World

  1. Would like to know why these are the top 10? Particular exhibits, the staff, the building/layout/design, number of people who visit, or a combination of many factors? Since most on this list are Art Museums, my guess is that a museum is a “must see” mainly because of the famous art work it contains, more than any other factor. What do you think?
