59 Fascinating Museums

From Pop Icon Museums to Architecturally Intriguing Museums

— December 30, 2012 — Art & Design
Take a tour through one of these intriguing museums and they may teach you more then you bargained for.

As museums are chock full of interesting artifacts as well as objects of historical importance, they are great places to go to educate oneself on something you may not have previously known. There are the traditional museums that are typically found in every major city, which usually house a vast array of interesting exhibits including dinosaurs bones or artifacts of ancient civilizations. For those who are looking to deviate away from the norm and learn something that may not be found in textbooks, there are also several unorthodox museums that you could visit such as the Online Info Museum. Though the most important part about a museum is usually the content found inside, some of them have equally stunning and intriguing architecture that is not to be missed.
