Museum Buildings

December 10, 2014

Travel

Today, my friends over at Culture Themes are celebrating everything related to museum buildings, i.e. the buildings that host the collections, but also anything related to architecture, as well as paintings and sculptures of buildings. I love this theme, as so often the actual buildings themselves are as much of an exhibition piece as the artefacts within them, so it’s great to shine a spotlight on them every now and then. I have therefore taken the opportunity to pull together the 20 most impressive museum buildings from my photo archives for you. Where applicable I’ve also included links to relevant blog posts about those museums. I hope you enjoy my little selection! Here they are, in alphabetical order:
