@bjnovak asked, we deliver. While I think there is an art to everything, including espionage, these museums are beyond the standard John Singer Sargent treatment.
  1. The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum | Orlando, FL
    The largest collection of Louis Comfort Tiffany stained glass and other works. Beautiful, simple, and elegant. (
  2. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame | Cleveland, OH
    An amazing display of music and its makers, with tons of interesting information about the industry, its history, and all the paraphernalia that goes along. (
  3. The International Spy Museum | Washington, D.C.
    Gadgets and espionage, two of my favorite things. Includes an air duct through which to crawl. (
  4. Les Arts Decoratifs | Paris, France
    A home to the "decorative arts," such as toys and jewelry. A wonderful gallery alongside the Tuileries. (
  5. The Colosseum and Roman Forum.
    All of Rome's treasures, really. And Pompeii and Herculaneum and Napoli and Milan and Firenze. A Classics minor's dream. ( (et cetera et cetera alteris urbis)
  6. The Tulip Museum | Amsterdam, Holland
    Holland's famous and mysterious flower, the tulip, is the star at this charming, tiny museum. (
  7. The Studio Ghibli Museum | Mitaka, Japan
    A gem of a museum outside Tokyo, complete with a cat bus. A CAT BUS. Innovative and whimsical, just like the world of Hayao Miyazaki himself. (
  8. The Terra Cotta Warriors | Xi'an, China
    Stunning, haunting, and breathtaking. Although there are many beautiful things in China, the terra cotta warriors exemplify the true magnitude of the country's strength and ability to create. ( (
