Are you a fan of art looking for the best place to enjoy some of the finest works made by painters and sculptors alike? If the answer is yes, you might be interested in finding out which museums are considered to be the very best. Here is a list of five top places to enjoy art!
Musee du Louvre, France. Louvre is arguably the most famous museum in the whole world. But it wasn’t designed to be one – it was once a royal palace in which French kings resided. Nowadays, however, it is home to some of the finest paintings and sculptures in the world, including Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo.
Vatican Museums, Italy. Although the Vatican City itself is actually pretty small, its art collection is stunningly big. To illustrate it some more, we need only say that it spans almost nine miles. In it, you will find the works of almost every great painter and sculptor from some of the most productive centuries when it comes to art. Not to mention the Sistine Chapel painted by Michelangelo himself.
Metropolitan Museum of Art, USA. New York is also considered to be home to both classic and modern art. The Metropolitan is the name of one of its most famous museums, the one containing over 2,000,000 pieces of art. These include not only sculptures made by famous Greek artists from the classical times, but also the works Pollock, Picasso and the like.
J.P. Getty Center, USA. Although it is not as well-known as the ones listed before, the Getty Center is a museum that deserves to be mentioned in this list. Not only does it contain works of Monet, Cezanne and Van Gogh, but is considered to be a piece of art itself. It boasts gorgeous gardens that let you see the whole of Los Angeles.
Musee d’Orsay, France. And last but not least, Musee d’Orsay was built for the 1900’s Universal Exhibition and features an impressive glass ceiling. But the architecture is not the only thing you will be admiring when visiting, since this museum contains plenty of famous works of art, including the “Starry Night” painted by Van Gogh.
