March 11, 2021
Think museums are boring? We do too! We are apt to change your mind with these amazing experiences across America. You probably thought you’d see familiar names: the Smithsonian, MoMa, the Getty – the icons of American museums. And, maybe we’re bending the connotation of “museum” just a tad. With many of our clients contemplating travel in the coming months close to home, we thought we would highlight some national treasures we think you may have missed – and are well worth the visit. Great for kids, adults, families, and solos, we’d like to hear from you on any special museums in your hometown and certainly comment on any of these that you may have already visited.
Pop-Up, Immersive Van Gogh, Multiple Locations – Coming Soon to a City Near You
It’s Van Gogh like you’ve never seen him before, in a multi-media light installation in secret locations. Coming soon to the cities of Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Francisco, Chicago, Toronto, Charlotte, and Dallas. This is a brilliant new way to experience art as the brushstrokes come alive.
The National WWII Museum - New Orleans, LA – Open Now
If you knew someone who fought or are a descendent of someone who fought, this is an absolute must visit. "I think this might be one of the best museums I’ve ever experienced," says Shelby Donley who recently went with her father. Begin with your own set of dog tags as your ticket and wave your family good-bye as you set off for war. Then, enter a Tom Hanks narrated movie of the entire war which resonates with those short on history and those who could tell their own. The movie itself is worth the visit, but after it sets the stage for the museum you then divide into the two theaters, Europe and the Pacific. "I now see both my grandfathers in a different light now," says Donley. Also, coming soon to the Big Easy, the much anticipated... Four Seasons New Orleans
"I now see both my grandfathers in a different light now and have a better understanding of their life after the war and subsequently, my parents' upbringing," says Donley.
