Museums in United States of America

Top Places To Visit

The Metropolitan Museum of Art

On Thursdays the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Metmuseum.org) is open until 9 pm, so I like to have a drink usuall uptown at the beautiful Surrey Hotel rooftop bar (Thesurrey.com) and then head to the museum. Walking around the museum after a glass of wine and seeing the Picassos and the Matisses gives your evening a cultural injection.

International UFO Museum and Research Center

The UFO museum is both a chronicle of the 1947 Roswell Incident and an exploration of all things UFO. Along the walls there are detailed accounts and "evidence" of the UFO crash and the supposed government cover-up. There are also exhibits that deal with and sometimes debunk other UFO phenomenon, including UFO sightings and crop circles. The gift shop has a surprisingly broad assortment of alien-related gifts, including the alien bobble-head doll that I bought for my desk.

Explora Science Center and Children's Museum of Albuquerque

Explora! Children's MuseumThis is a great children's museum. It is so educational and organized very nicely. There is a water area that has several hands-on exhibits demonstrating how dams work, water currents, undercurrents, waterfalls, drainage systems, fountains, and how taking the air out of the water can make the flow crystal clear. There is a wind area where the kids can build windmills to see if they work, a vehicle with sails to race, and airplanes to test their design in a wind tunnel. A musical area allows sound waves to become visible, demonstrating how different pitches make different frequencies and waves. The outdoor area allows children to build forts out of life-size Lincoln logs and test a sound dome. Our favorite areas were the electrical area that allowed the children to learn about electrical connections and currents by hooking wires up to batteries, which would light a lightbulb when connected correctly, and a bicycle on a tightrope, which was balance by weight.

Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor

We didn't originally intend to stop here but we had extra time at Pearl Harbor. I'm really glad we stopped! It's a smaller museum but there's a lot of great planes and a lot of history to see. It's also included with the pass!

Museum of Nature & Science

New Mexico Museum of Nature & ScienceRight across the street from the children's museum is the Museum of Nature & Science. This was a spectacular museum because it was sectioned off into areas that defined New Mexico history. You could walk the journey through time. An evolater elevator gave you a thorough, interactive history of the state, then you could walk through the time of dinosaurs, the volcanoes, the caverns, gems and minerals, even New Mexico's rich history of nuclear science and computer development. Did you know that Microsoft was founded in Albuquerque! It's true.

Gibbes Museum of Art

Like most things in Charleston, the beaux arts Gibbes Museum of ARt is old established in 1858 and still reigns as the city’s cultural guardian with thousands of (mainly) Southern artworks (you scan almost fall into the panoramas of Charleston Harbour). But it lets its hair down with pop-up exhibition on anything from rock-n-roll photography to African American gardens.

New Mexico Museum of Space History

This museum can be seen from all over the valley as it sits up on the foothills of the Sacramento Mountains. There is a huge rocket standing vertically outside surrounded by several smaller rockets, communication equipment, and space memorabilia. Inside, there is a small admission fee and gift shop on the main level. Once you pay, just take the elevator up to the top and walk your way back down. Each floor has lots of informative space information, pictures and bios of astronauts, New Mexico's huge part in the space mission, and lots of space suits, rockets, satellites, drones, and other objects on display.
