The saying “Art for the art’s sake” might as well go further to visiting museums… for the sake of museums. At times the architecture of museum buildings can even rival the art hosted inside. Each of these museums has a spirit and a philosophy of its own, attractive enough to inspire us for a long journey. Here is our list of the museums with the most impressive architecture.
