More-than-memorable museums

Every great city has its venues for high culture — museums, art galleries, private collections, public spaces, parks, and theaters.

But if you’re feeling a little burned out by the regular tourist attractions, consider seeking out something a little more… colorful. Here are three of our favorite off-the-beaten-track museums for the next time you decide to hit the road.

Museum of Bad Art — Boston
For over 20 years, the not-even-close-to-masterpieces of the world have found a home at Boston’s Museum of Bad Art. What started in the basement of a private home has blossomed to a pair of theater basement spaces — perhaps fitting, given the hilarious duds in this collection. From portraits to landscapes, these sometimes captivating, often gut-busting works prove beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder.

International Spy Museum — Washington, DC
America’s only museum dedicated solely to espionage has the largest collection of artifacts of its kind in the world. From physical exhibits to multimedia displays to hands-on interactive adventures, kids of all ages (even the grown-up kind) will find the International Spy Museum a thrilling, mind-opening experience that changes the way you think about espionage.

Museum of Sex — New York City
The preservation of “history, evolution and cultural significance of human sexuality” — that’s the goal of New York’s Museum of Sex. Books, media, and artifacts run the gamut of human history, with a focus on the way we have changed — and the way our thoughts about sex and sexuality have changed as well. It’s certainly one of the steamiest stops you’ll make while in New York City — no matter what the weather’s like outside.
