4 Museums You Must Visit in Your Lifetime

Bucket lists – we all have them. Whether they’re formally written down, or merely as a consistent thought and sense of wanderlust, many of us have a great number of adventures we want to take in our lifetime. For some of us, the desire to dip our toes in every ocean might be the push we need to plan the next adventure. For others, packing up an RV and hitting every American state can set the wheels in motion.

We are confident that the desire to be in front of the world's most incredible artworks fuels a passion for many of our readers. Search for an accountant near me to find out how you can make your travel plans happen. After all, witnessing exhibits and collections of priceless artwork is spellbinding. Whether your preference is for art, culture, or history, keep reading to find out the top four museums you must visit in your lifetime.

Metropolitan Museum of Art
Location: New York City, USA
Entry Fee: $25 (adults)
Must See: Gertrude Stein by Pablo Picasso

Located in the center of New York’s Upper East Side is the Metropolitan Museum of Art, or “the Met” as it is more customarily known. This is the largest art museum in the entire United States, and is the permanent home to more than two million pieces spread amongst the seventeen departments. Open since 1872, the Met has works of antiquity, sculpture, photographs, paintings, instruments, and costumes.

The Louvre
Location: Paris, France
Entry Fee: €15 (adults)
Must See: Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci

The Louvre is a must-see on everyone’s bucket list, regardless of whether you are a museum buff or not. The Mona Lisa is the most famous resident; however, the Louvre is the world’s largest art museum and home to over 380,000 pieces amongst the eight departments. Opened in 1793, the Louvre was used for hundreds of years previously as a fortress and residence for French royalty.

The Egyptian Museum
Location: Cairo, Egypt
Entry Fee: 160 EGP or $10 (adults)
Must See: The Gold Mask of Tutankhamun

It would be impossible to visit every room, or even every floor, of the Egyptian Museum on a single visit. The degree of history in one building is simply jaw-dropping. Unsurprisingly, this museum houses the most extensive collection of pharaonic antiquities globally and is home to more than 120,000 pieces. Built in 1902, the Egyptian Museum is due to be eclipsed by the Grand Egyptian Museum at Giza sometime in 2021.

British Museum
Location: London, UK
Entry Fee: Free
Must See: The Rosetta Stone

The British Museum boasts the most significant number of artifacts in one location, at nearly eight million. Exhibitions on art, human history, and culture intermingle with pieces from famous artists such as Van Gogh, Michelangelo, and Da Vinci. Since entry is free, you can return again and again and spend your time deciphering the Rosetta Stone for yourself.

We trust that you have been inspired to dive into new and exciting museums from locations dotted all around the world. We are never beyond learning or fueling our passions, so check out a virtual tour until the time comes that you can jump on a plane and see it for yourself.
