New York has some of the most important museums in the world: the Museum of Natural History, the Guggenheim, the MoMA (Museum of Modern Art), and the Metropolitan Museum (or just “The Met”). Just like Paris, you may need from 2 to 3 full days to see them completely.
.
I started with the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH). The museums of this particular subject usually are the similar on the whole world. The difference, in this case, are the proportions. This one is huge, with a 3D IMAX theatre, and the dark Marine Life room with the famous whale pending from the roof.
.
The next one was the Metropolitan Museum. It is quite similar to Louvre when speaking of the amount of rooms and some design elements of its architecture. Because I love Egypt, I also spent more time in the egyptian rooms than in any other ones. For the first time, I saw smiling mummies (quite bizarre). There’s a lot of paintings from famous artists, such as Rembrandt, Goya, Caravaggio, Manet, Renoir, Cézanne, and the self portrait of Van Gogh. What really got my attention were the musical instruments. I’ve never seen so many types of guitars from all around the world. Also the percussion instruments of 2 meters-high of the old China who looked like mummies.
.
The other 2 museums were the MoMA and the Guggenheim. Because I got there when they were closing, I could only see the MoMA from the main hall. On the Guggenheim, there was a display of Italian Futurism. What I found most interesting about this particular museum was the experience of the descendent floors, like a spiral. After taking the elevator to the last floor, the display goes down to the ground floor of the building. Quite cool.
