Olympia museum

Very much recommended! Unique pieces, lots of information and clear exhibitions.

Acropolis museum, Athens

The glass facade of the beautiful new museum reflects the Acropolis
The sculputures from the Parthenon are exhibited with a view on the original building
There is no place in this city where you don’t find archeological remains, so there has been a huge excavation before building the musseum. The results are visible through the floor of the museum.

National museum, Huye

Historically, Huye is the intellectual heart of Rwanda, with the university and, consequently, hosts the National museum as well. The museum offers good exhibitions (trilingual!) About the history and the customs in Rwanda and is definitely worth a visit.

Arp museum, Rolandseck

Hans Arp was one of the founders of art movement Dada in Zurich in 1916. Part of his art collection is presented in the Arp museum in Rolandseck. The station building (the station still being in use) and a new building by Richard Meier house works by Arp himself and works from the original Dada-movement or artists inspired by them. Worth a visit if only for the views across the Rhine, but certainly as well for the building and the art collection.
