My Favorite Museums

A list of museums that I have been to and absolutely loved.


Ringling Museum of Art

Ringling Museum of Art

The Ringling has an amazing collection of European art from ancient Greek and Roman art to the Old Masters to entire rooms from the great houses of New York city.

Ca' D'Zan

The Ringlings' mansion is a giant pastiche of almost every major artistic movement in Europe. The house has elements of everything from Romanesque churches to Venetian villas.


National Gallery of Art

National Gallery of Art

The National Gallery is one of the fine art museums of the Smithsonian Institute. I can literally spend entire days here.


Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens

Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens

The Cummer is a beautiful museum with stunning gardens on the St. Johns River. There's also a fun interactive education space!

Biltmore Estate

The Biltmore is one of the estates built by the Vanderbilt family during the Gilded Age. It's literally a French chateau in the middle of North Carolina. It is one of the most stunning historic homes I have ever visited.

EMP Museum - Music + Sci-fi + Pop Culture

EMP is one of the most unique museums I have ever been to. I particularly love the Sci-fi Hall of Fame.

Colonial Williamsburg

Colonial Williamsburg is America's largest outdoor history museum and is one of my favorite places in the world.

Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art: HOME PAGE

The Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art at the University of Florida is the first museum I interned at. The Asian wing and gardens are so beautiful.

National Museum of American History

The National American History Museum is another part of the Smithsonian Institute. I love that their collection include contemporary history and pop culture.

Mount Vernon

Mount Vernon is the estate of George Washington and is the most popular historic estate in America. It is a stunning home and is very well preserved.
