These Are the 25 Best Museums in the World

Sep 17, 2014

If you're booking vacations for the holidays, take note: TripAdvisor has released a list of the 25 best museums in the world.

The rankings -- part of TripAdvisor's Travelers' Choice awards -- are based on millions of reviews from travelers across the globe over the past 12 months.

Coming in at number one is the renowned Art Institute of Chicago. Founded in 1879, the popular Windy City destination houses more than 300,000 pieces of art, including famous works like Grant Wood's American Gothic, Claude Monet's Stack of Wheat and Georges Seurat's A Sunday on La Grande Jatte. (You'll also remember this museum from that awesome scene in Ferris Bueller's Day Off.)

Other top museums on the list include the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City, the State Hermitage Museum and Winter Palace in St. Petersburg, the Getty Center in Los Angeles and the Musee d'Orsay in Paris. The full list is here.

Oh, and if these museums seem a bit too quotidian for you, check out our list of the 10 weirdest museums in the world. You know, for some variety.
