Art has always been a way to express oneself, to depict what one is thinking/imagining. Museums have collected and taken care of the masterpieces we have grown to love and resonate with.

There are thousands of museums around the world. It can be overwhelming to know which are the top rated and most popular to visit. I’ve compiled an interactive map of the top 10 best art museums around the world, in no particular order.

Within the list comes some of the obvious greats; The Louvre, The Met and Uffizi Gallery. Then there are some smaller but just as grand options such as the Mauritshuis. Nonetheless, all of these museums have masterpieces within them.

The museums have been ranked according to visitors and the level of prestige the artwork has. Museums are a popular tourist destination and having this map will surely come in handy. Of course, everyone’s depiction of art is different so I made sure the list had a bit of variety while staying true to the renowned museums.
