6 Must-Visit Museums in New York City
1. Morbid Anatomy Museum
Disturbing is a good way to describe the exhibits you will see in the Morbid Anatomy Museum. Its very name is a clear warning of what you can expect from this place. However, this place is fascinating as well if your interests lie in the study of death as well as all things elegantly gothic.
It turns out way too many artists and creative personalities in general created works that are macabre yet gorgeous. At least, that’s the kind of thoughts that come to mind when one looks at a display of bejeweled skulls.
2. Museum of Jewish Heritage
The Museum of Jewish Heritage with its Auschwitz Exhibits, is one of the museums you simply cannot afford to miss in NYC. The subject it is dedicated to is not easy and some of the things you will learn inside these walls are terrifying. However, it’s the purpose of any museum to help you learn a bit more about the history and the world around you. The lesson you will learn in this museum is hard to swallow, but it’s something everyone needs to know.
Seeing how deep humans can fall when their minds are ravaged by war, bigotry, and fear is essential to understand the human nature better. More importantly, it shows you how to important it is to always fight for peace, equality, respect, and understanding for all people.
