10 of the best museums in the world

TripAdvisor has released its list of the most popular museums on the planet. How many have you seen so far?

Some of the top museums in India may not have figured in TripAdvisor’s list of the most popular museums in the country, but that’s not necessarily the case with the international museums. Sure, you may want to believe that the Louvre topped this year’s list (it didn’t) or that the British Natural History Museum was among the top 10 (it isn’t), but these museums are among the most visited in the world for a reason.
