American Museums Every Student Should Visit

If you are planning your trip to America or if you are lucky to study there, the first thing in your to-do-list should be visits to as many top museums in America as possible. Stop spending your time only on essays term papers, just order essay writing or find essays online and start your adventurous journey to the famous museum in the US.

Cities of all states have a rich heritage. Practically in every city, and even the smallest town, there is something that makes its people shine with pride: a memorial, an ancient dinosaur bone, a rubbed baseball, which was once touched by a favorite of the public, or some decorations and household items of Indians.

Here is our short guide to the best museums in the USA.

1. Washington
In Washington, there are about 20 museums that are part of the Smithsonian Institution complex, the largest collection of historical exhibits in the world. The National Museum of Aviation and Aerospace possesses the largest collection of historical aircraft and spacecraft in the world. In addition, there you can see several unique Chinese kites of the XIX century, aircraft engines, lunar modules and astronaut space suits.

Within the walls of the National Museum of American History, you can see a lot of things that belonged to historical figures of the United States. The National Museum of Natural History has a huge collection - 126 million exhibits, including dinosaur skeletons, stuffed rare animals, minerals and meteorites.

They operate seven days a week all year round, except December 25, from 10:00 to 16:30.

All museums of the Smithsonian Institution admission are free. And that is a huge plus, especially, if you want to save money for online essay writing order. Students have to write tons of essays research papers and so on. And, it may cost you a lot of money if you will order all the essays. That is why you can try to find free essays online. The essay site will help you get the best possible essay in no time and efforts. And therefore you’ll save you time for visiting museums.

2. New York
Tourists who come to New York, too, will not be bored because here world values are gathered: the Guggenheim, the American Museum of National History, of Modern Art, one of the best art galleries in the world - the Metropolitan Museum.

Among the diversity of museums are remarkable the floating Aviation Museum, located on the huge Intrepid class aircraft carrier, which once bore the name Fearless (the ticket cost is 26 USD), and the Museum of Immigration on Ellis Island. A visit to the latter is best combined with a cruise to the Statue of Liberty; the tour lasts about 3 hours.

3. Other cities
It is believed that only the big cities of America attract millions of tourists every month - this is a delusion that needs to be dispelled. For example, the unique Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania) deserves a detailed study. It contains a large collection of exhibits related to geology, paleontology, and biology.

The facade of the Children's Museum in Indianapolis (Indiana) is full of huge dinosaurs. It is interesting not only for children, but also for adults: here you can have an extreme wedding, ride a chocolate slide in the country of Willy Wonka, put scientific experiments in conditions close to space, try to live like a real astronaut, get to know China, and visit the Egyptian tomb! All current exhibitions and work schedule can be found on its website.

The Exploratorium in San Francisco (California) is an interactive science museum founded by the physicist Frank Oppenheimer. Precisely, Exploratorium became the first “museum of participation” in the world.

The Monterey Oceanarium (California) is one of the largest in the world, with more than 600 species of marine animals. The colossal Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago (Illinois) contains unique exhibits: a working coal mine, a rover, the Apollo 8 spacecraft compartment.

Every year the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield (Massachusetts) is replenished with new names.

There are a lot of extravagant museums in the United States too. In Massachusetts, there is the Museum of Bad Art, located in Dedham Square, where works that have been recognized as the failure of creators are represented. Amateur ufologists should visit the International Museum and the UFO Research Center, which exhibits are controversial.

Wisconsin has its own circus Museum with a curious and large collection of circus attributes: souvenirs, posters, costumes from around the world. It has more than 200 cabins, which are the same as to plunge into the world of childhood, celebration and magic.

Here are some more great places to check out in the USA.

1. Chihuly Garden and Glass, Seattle
2. The Getty Center, Los Angeles
3. NASA Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, Titusville
4. The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago
5. Biltmore, Asheville
