One of the most exciting things about travel within Europe are the beautiful museums, many of them free, scattered across the continent. It truly is a delight for the art lover. Here is just a brief sampling of some museums you should consider visiting during your time in Europe:
Tate Modern, London
Presently, Tate Modern is one of the largest modern art collections world wide. Most probably if you are visiting the country for more than a few days, this is the best place to spend your time even if you know little about art. The works, many of them abstract, of famous artists are what make Tate Modern a place where you’ll want to linger for hours on end.
Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam
Most arts under this museum mainly dwell on Dutch paintings. The collection of pieces from different sources makes it unique and that’s what captivates you. Your journey across the city will make you aware about the greater contribution of Dutch people in the field of art.
The Vatican Museum, Vatican City
This is one of the most impressive collections in Europe. The Vatican Museum displays the collection of the Roman Catholic Church, and is home to an immense number of classical sculptures and paintings amounting to 54 galleries in total. You could spend an entire day here and not even begin to cover everything there is to see here. On the last Sunday of each month, the Vatican Museum is open to the public for free, but be ready to spend hours waiting in line.
Pergamon Museum, Berlin
The museum is geographically located in the middle of the city. The museum was constructed with original stones from Turkey. The renovation of the Ishtar gate has also been made, thus you are being surrounded by sculptures and other pieces of art.
