“We used to build temples, and museums are about as close as secular society dares to go in facing up to the idea that a good building can change your life (and a bad one ruin it).” (Alain de Botton)

We love museums. Well, not quite. We love museums that turn us into curious kids again and let us experience the wonders of science and nature. Mostly natural history and science museums, aquariums and zoos – especially those that mix education and entertainment. Here we collected the posts we wrote about our favorite museum visits all over the world.

Art museums? You won’t find much about them here. We respect but can’t love and rarely visit them. Still there’s some smaller creative and beautiful art exhibitions that God knows why we decided to visit but we ended up enjoying them very much! Like Chihuly Garden & Glass in Seattle.
