The GREAT MUSEUMS Directory Project
In our travels, the GREAT MUSEUMS team has profiled many museums - both on and off the beaten path. Over a decade ago, we began compiling a list of the museums of the United States. Visit our Find a Museum page to discover a great museum in your back yard.
There are over 15,000 museums in the United States offering thousands of different experiences and displaying millions of objects from around the world. Touch a moon rock. Experience zero gravity in a space flight simulator. Examine the intricate brush strokes of a Van Gogh painting. All of this is possible in the Museum World!
See the state by state directory on the right side of this page to find museum experiences near you.
