If you're like us, visiting museums is a must when traveling. Whether you're into fashion, art, architecture, or history, these museums will satisfy your travel needs and cultural curiosity.
1. Fondazione Prada | Milan, Italy
"Fondazione Prada was established by the Italian fashion house Prada in 1993 as a cultural organization dedicated to art, cinema and philosophy. The new Milan venue gives the foundation a permanent exhibition space."
2. Acropolis Museum | Athens, Greece
"Designed to expand human intellect, the New Acropolis Museum breaks with tradition through adopting an extremely user-friendly attitude that insists on putting visitors first. Once inside, the ground floor gallery simulates the uphill walk of the Acropolis slope, where the world beneath your feet is made up of the ancient remains excavated during the construction of the building, covered by glass panels."
3. The Broad | Los Angeles, CA
"[The Broad is] LA’s most celebrated contemporary art space and architectural landmark. The museum was a high-profile project in the making for years, but while its doors finally opened to the public in Fall 2015, getting in isn’t quite as simple as strolling up to the front door for your free admission [...] Despite the competition to get in, the Broad is a must-do regardless of whether you’re a resident or tourist."
4. Gucci Museo | Florence, Italy
"Located on Piazza della Signoria, right opposite Pallazzo Vecchio is the Gucci Museum. The exhibition is done well, not overwhelming and you'll be surprised to learn that Gucci started as a luggage shop. It's surprisingly crowd-free and you'll get to see some beautiful iconic dresses too. Of course, Gucci cafe for fuel and Gucci gift shop for gifts, are mandatory stops."
5. M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark |
"Located in the surrounds of Kronborg Castle, which dates back to the fifteenth century, the Danish Maritime Museum forms part of the Kulturhavn Kronborg initiative - an effort to bring cultural attractions to Helsingør's harbour. The museum's underground galleries present the story of Denmark's maritime history up to the present day, contained within a two-storey rectangular structure that encases the dry dock."
6. Armani Silos | Milan, Italy
"Armani/silos is a living, open-to-the-public space illustrating Giorgio Armani’s professional experience, revealing a rich heritage of unique know-how: a space in which to design the future, a showcase of new attitudes and lifestyles that capture changing times and cultures."
