<p>Some museums are such bastions of artistic, cultural, and historical wonder that they may compel you to pack your bags and visit, even if they’re several time zones away. Many of are top picks are located in popular cities that tempt travelers with their many attractions&mdash;but some of our selections may surprise you. From the Louvre in Paris to the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, these are 15 museums we’d happily cross an ocean to visit. After taking a gander, you may decide to plan a trip of your own. </p>

These are almost all ART Museums. I think you need to do this again for museums that are not primarily art galleries. My favorites are decorative arts museums, and historical museums like the British Museum.

The permanent collection was a bit of disappointment at the Tate Modern as is the permanent collection at the Guggenheim in Bilbao (and NYC, even though that is not on your list.) It is the skin of the museum in Bilbao that is interesting. And must be a Miro fan to thoroughly enjoy that museum, although the setting is spectacular. Cannot quibble with the others.
