Visiting a museum is an enjoyable and enlightening way to invest your precious time. However, many of us rush through Museums, Art Galleries or Historical Sites, as we rush through life, without appreciating the full significance of the experience. “Joy of Museums” presents an opportunity to find understanding and meaning in the history, beauty and the wonder in the world’s great Museums, Art Galleries & Historical Sites.

The content on this site will grow, evolve and develop into a series of books. This website is about creating and publishing in real-time. Sharing with a world audience and seeking feedback as the site content grows with time. Additional content will be added and feedback is welcome.

We have enjoyed visiting many of the museums featured in Joy of Museums. This website is dedicated to sharing and exploring beauty, understanding and meaning in all types of Museums, Art Galleries and Historical Sites across the world.
