USS Midway Museum San Diego
Audio tour stops are informative and well presented.The presence of multiple, well informed guides or docents take this museum orders of magnitude above similar museums.
I've been to a few ships in my time and visited a lot of naval museums coast to coast, this is one of my favorite and intellectually enlightening tours I've visited.

The Getty Center Los Angeles
This is one of the finest museums in California, very modern, the building itself a gem of modern architecture with many terraces linking the galleries affording spectacular views of LA.
Beautiful gardens, great special exhibits, expansive views, wonderful architecture and that is before entering the art museums.

Yes, as in all Presidential museums, there's a favorable twist to much of the information, but there were some spectacular accomplishments highlighted, including part of the Berlin Wall in the Cold War section.
The museums provides a great overview of President Reagan's accomplishments.
Small when compared to "top-tier" museums, the Simon nonetheless has spacious, well-lit, uncrowded galleries that allow art lovers to gaze as long as they like at works by Cezanne, Renoir, Van Gogh, Goya, Rembrand...
This is a lovely museum that has a nice selection of artwork to represent the different periods - Renaissance, Classic, Impressionist... Perfect for someone like me who gets easily overwhelmed by large museums
Palm Springs has one of the best air museums in the world and the people who volunteer here have so much living history it is a must see for anyone who has an interest in airplanes, our war history and veterans.
Every time I go to Palm Springs I like to visit the Palm Springs Air Museum which has recently been named one of the 10 best WW2 museums in the World.
This was a place we just stumbled upon as the result of a search of visiting Carlsbad, and we've often found that the small local museums are often charming and present an interesting history of the area.

I tend to enjoy history, natural history, and science museums while my wife is more interested in art.
It had been years since I visited the Oakland Museum (it used to be almost my second home when I was studying museums in grad school)and I was so pleasantly surprised to visit it a few weeks ago while on a trip to...
In the past I have visited other model train museums (e. g., the large Lionel Museum that used to be on 23th street in Manhattan, NY.
I have been to several railroad museums and this is my favorite.
A must see if you like museums, history, art, & gardens.
The gardens are wonderful, the museum building a great example of new, midcentury modern design and the movie which captures the history was fascinating.
One of the best museums I've ever visited.
The museum is packed full of neat artefacts and photos and they have some great unusual souvenirs too - I grabbed myself one of the really cool Bodie baseball jerseys!
Crocker Art Museum Sacramento
The new wing contains, in my opinion, some of the best Ca Impressionism art (besides the Oakland and the Irving museums); a wonderful contemporary collection, comparable to MOMA; however, more CA artists are repre...
As a visitor from out of state that has been able to see many other Art museums, I was delighted with collections and the layout!
Casa del Herrero Santa Barbara
A wonderful house museum and amazing gardens
I have been to many museums - but I think this may be the best ever, We saw tipple cars, stamp mills, "one lung Popping Jennys", ball mills, air-cooled Wisconsins - all functioning.
The history of the railroad is fascinating but this museum also offers a look at a 100 years of Inyo County's past (and by association much of the west) including mining, architecture, agriculture and education.
I am a fan of Italian art and artifacts and found the Villa offered different insights into Italian and Greek history than the museums in Italy.
Still, the collection is fabulous and you can get a much closer view than you can at many of the great museums.

I've visited about 100 air museums, including the nation's biggest and best endowed collections, but Planes of Fame has got rare and significant historica pieces that set it apart from all of the others.
They also have books the pilots have written for sale and signed by the pilots, But It is the walk through the museums that is so interesting.
The museum itself, does a very good job of explaining both the gold mining process and the history of the Empire Mine - More interesting for adults that want to take the time to read and appreciate the history.
The mining museum and exhibits are interesting, the grounds are quite nice, and the trails are good for walking and mountain bike riding.
Exploratorium San Francisco
We visit science museums whenever we travel and our family has the ability to geek out particularly hard when it comes to hands-on fun.
I love physics and hands-on experiments for kids, especially preschool and primary grade level (which we found in abundance in Chgo museums and universities for our four young'uns back in the day).

Nixon's museum is definitely one of the best presidential museums which provides a great insight into his presidency and life.

My girlfriends and I visit museums for our birthday celebrations several times a year for art and lunch.
It's a small museum, but we loved seeing the current exhibit they had on The Life Project with an accompanying documentary on the photographer - here through March 2016 and it is totally recommended!

The Palm Springs Art Museum is one of those fabulous art museums that, although smaller, has a stellar collection.
