Must-See Museums | Hg2 FRIFOTOS

Museum-going is one of those tricky things to navigate while travelling. Sometimes it feels a bit like once you’ve seen one, you’ve seen ’em all. And, let’s face it, there are some pretty shoddy museums out there. But here at Hg2, we don’t shy away from the cultural side of life and we love a good museum – but it has to be a good one. With this week’s #FriFotos theme being ‘Museums’, we decided to round up some of our favourites – must-see museums that you simply shouldn’t miss if you’re in these cities. They might not be the most famous (though some of them undoubtably are), but they are some of the best and most unique museums we know of.

Rijksmuseum Amsterdam

Amsterdam’s best known museum and certainly the city’s grandest, the Rijksmuseum has some glorious works on display, including huge Vermeer and Rembrandt collections.

Victoria and Albert Museum V&A London

One of the most important museums in London, the Victoria & Albert Museum is seven miles of galleries, halls and corridors containing over 4 million items.

Neon Museum Las Vegas

Sometimes you just have to have a little fun, and that’s where the Neon Museum in Las Vegas comes in. Offering the chance to experience the Vegas of years gone by, it’s a (mostly) outdoor collection of restored neon and blinking signs that once adorned long-gone businesses along Fremont Street.

Nobel Museum Stockholm

Stockholm‘s most famous prize is honoured in the Nobel Museum, which is housed in a beautiful 18th-century building and commemorates the works of Nobel laureates, from Winston Churchill to Al Gore.

MoMA Museum of Modern Art NYC

It’s not difficult to find good art in New York, but the pinnacle of the art scene here (and indeed in the world) is MoMA, the Museum of Modern Art, home to some 150,000 works.

Musee D'Orsay Paris

Most visitors to Paris, especially first-timers, head straight for the Louvre, and while we can’t find fault with that, we prefer the Impressionist bounty to behold in the reconstituted railway station that is the Musee d’Orsay.

Mori Art Museum Tokyo Japan

Perhaps one of the strangest and most wondrous museums we know of, the Mori Art Museum is a sort of Alice-in-Wonderland gallery of contemporary art tucked up on the 53rd floor of a Tokyo skyscraper.

Bag an Hg2 city guide for your next trip and you won’t miss out on the best museums to behold.
