I'd still love to visit Kansas City. If I ever do, I'll be sure to check out the Nelson-Atkins.

When I was younger, I was thoroughly obsessed with ancient Greek and Roman mythology. You're blessed to have had the opportunity to see such vast ruins and architectural sites up close.

I can see why museums might not be impressive to you. Still, what I appreciate about them is that they allow people who may not be able to travel all over a glimpse into other eras and places. Also, in addition to classical works I really appreciate art throughout various stages of history. If anything, I find myself gravitating more towards contemporary or modern art because Western classical art can seem homogeneous... or like I've already seen it countless times in a history book.

Near Naples is Apollo's oracle, the Cumaean Sibyl from when it was a Greek colony.

We took a car ferry over to Greece and drove around over there for a week. The ancient site of the original Olympic games is a neat place to be.

We spent a day exploring the ancient Greek city-state of Mycenae. Everyone we met was very friendly.

We enjoyed ancient Corinth, the museum there is loaded with fantastic stone statues.

One time I took a month of personal leave and went to Egypt with a tourist group. We spent much of our time on a paddleboat going up the Nile River, stopping at each of the archeological dig sites. The Valley of the Kings, each of the Pyramids, etc. That was a lot of fun until every one of us in the group all got sick from food poisoning..

Breathtaking is the best word I can think of. It was a really formative experience for me, and to this day I can recall the feeling of just being in awe standing in front of her ornate, massive pieces. Her trajectory and process really fascinates me. Earlier in her career, she would stage and photograph portraits with models posed in lush settings. More recently, she'd rework a photograph by blowing it up and converting it into a mixed-media collage painting. Above are two of her pieces I saw which really resonated with me. Below is a great example of one of her photos which she then reworked.

I've started collecting a light gathering of Chinese/Japanese art and decor to fill my walls..


Not to be confused with Monet, I'm similarly excited to see an Édouard Manet exhibition at the Art Institute in Chicago. Recently I've been learning about him and his cohort of French Impressionist painters and I can't wait to see his works in-person.

There are many levels of intelligence. The knowledge we acquire continues throughout our lives. Visits to a museum is a quiet, enjoyable way to reach outside yourselve and add to your wealth of knowledge.

A visit to Washington DC becomes an adventure when you look at the opportunities to visit the museums.

A visit to Chicago is not complete without a visit to the Museum of Science & Indust.
A visit to Kansas City is not complete without a visit to the Rockhill Nelson.

Sadness in life is the missed opportunity to explore something new.

Thanks for your recommendations. You raise a great point. Usually, I stick with art museums. But there are so many great science and natural history museums worth checking out. I've been meaning to go see the Field Museum which is also off South Lake Shore Drive in Chicago. I'll report back if I do.

In the 60's I was stationed at Quantico, VA just south of Washington, DC. Most weekends we would drive up for the day to Washington to visit the Smithsonian: with many visits, we never did see everything.

I had a visit to DC two years ago, things have changed at the Smithsonian. I wish I could go back more often.

Besides the fact all of the Smithsonian Museums are world class, they are also free! However, you don't need to be in DC, NYC, SF, etc to enjoy a great museum, sometimes the small, more obscure venues provide big surprises and high value. I imagine most folks going to Las Vegas aren't thinking about museums, but there are a number of really cool places for alternative museum experiences, i.e.:


https://www.neonmuseum.org/


http://pinballmuseum.org/


https://nationalatomictestingmuseum.org/


https://themobmuseum.org/


And given the nature of this forum we have to include...


https://www.eroticmuseumvegas.com/

I adore Michael Parks. His art is so whimsical,light and airy. When I look at his work I am transported into his world of whimsical mischeif and naughtiness.

If you love art, these collections are the most impressive I have seen so far. While there are many artists in this world, you will know why these are the most widely known.

GALERIE MICHAEL 
224 North Rodeo Drive 
Beverly Hills, CA 90210 
Tel: (310) 273-3377
VIEW WEBSITE
One of the most impressive collections of t Pablo Picasso exhibition of graphic works in the U.S. taking place at the famed Galerie Michael. It even featured 60 newly discovered visual art pieces.
Never before seen. The exciting fact about Picasso is he drew a lot of the ladies he was in armored with. I was impressed by this exhibit.


Andy Warhol Museum 117 Sandusky St, Pittsburgh, PA 152
The Andy Warhol Museum n the North Shore of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in the United States. It is the largest museum in North America dedicated to a single artist. The museum holds an extensive permanent collection of art and archives from the Pittsburgh-born pop art icon Andy Warhol. If you like modern art, it is the most captivating contemporary art exhibit I have seen.



The Norton Simon Museum--Pasadena, California

The famous Norton Simon Museum is known for one of the largest collections of Renaissance 20 century Art.

Over 30 years, the industrialist Norton Simon (1907–1993) amassed an impressive group of European masterworks from the Renaissance to the 20th century and a stellar collection of South and Modern works from Europe and the United States. This collection will fascinate you.

On a few occasions, I've visited SoCal and I got to explore Los Angeles and San Diego. I've never been to Pasadena though. If I do, I'll definitely check out the Norton Simon Museum.

His paintings remind me of Dali's.

Great list! And I wholeheartedly agree. I'm dying to see the Mob Museum in Vegas. And while I didn't get around to visiting the Erotic Museum there, I have gone to the WEAM in Miami which is jam packed with art and artifacts from centuries ago through modern times. It was definitely a valuable experience. Getting to see the Clockwork Orange cock was fun.
