      Do you usually visit art museums? I like to visit museums when I go to another city.

      We do not have many art museums where I stay, however there are two large community halls that organize art exhibitions often.

        Really @realityspeaks? I have recently read that in my country (Italy) there are 5,600 museums and archeological sites. I like very much the Capitoline Museums in Rome.

        @luciaanna, according to the US government, there are well over 35,000 museums in the US. Most of them aren’t art museums, and that only counts the ones that are on the American registry of museums. There are probably 2-3 times that many, counting smaller museums that are privately owned and operated.

        Over 35,000 museums in the US? Really a big number @rextrulove

        The US is a really big place, @luciaanna. 🙂 Italy is very slightly bigger than Arizona in area, and there are fives states (including Montana) that are bigger than Arizona. So if Italy has 5,600 museums, there are a lot more museums per square kilometer in Italy than there are in the US. lol

      To be completely honest, I’ve never been to an art museum and have no desire to go to one. I’ve been to an art gallery, but never to an art museum.

        I see @rextrulove. As to me, I like to visit museums when I visit a new city with my husband and my friends.

        Oh, I don’t at all mind visiting museums, @luciaanna, I just don’t care to visit art museums. If I ever visited Washington, D.C., I’d want to visit the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. In fact, that is about the only reason I can think of that would make me want to go there. 😀

        Well, I hope you can visit the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History very soon @rextrulove.

      I love an art museum, or any. I will also use my traveling to see what they have in forms of museums especially for that area. When I was in South Caroline I went to the USS Yorktown that is now a Museum. Or when I was in Biloxi, Ms. I went to the Southern presidents old home place that is now a museum. And its funny because I never cared to listen to history 🙂

      We’ve been to an art museum where they showcase a lot of 3d and illusion art which is actually good for photographs.

      I like to visit museums of all types, to learn about new things. I also like art museums, but not to look at abstract art LOL sadly, we only have a small handful of museums where I live, you can only go so many times.

      @nana Why? Maybe because you do not like art museums? Or maybe lack of time?
