Part of the analysis focused exclusively on those cities that offered the best attractions for tourists who like to spend their time experiencing culture through museums, art galleries, and other arts and crafts exhibits. The study results showed that New Orleans, U.S. offered the best combination of quantity and quality of museums and art galleries.
Top 5 Cities in the World for Museums and Art Galleries/Exhibits
New Orleans takes the top spot as the world’s top destination for museums and art exhibits, where tourists are receiving the best offering in this category, with 142 museums rated an average of 4.81 out of 5, and 90 art galleries/exhibits rated an average of 4.8 out of 5.
England’s capital, London, came in second in this category – despite having more museums and art exhibits – the average rating of these attractions was far lower than New Orleans’ galleries and art exhibits.
Propelling New Orleans forward for museum and art lovers was The National WWII Museum, which has over 30,000 reviews and still keeps a 5/5 score on TripAdvisor. Smaller attractions such as the Rosetree Blown Glass Studio (5/5 from 60+ reviews) and The Shard Shop (5/5 from 39 reviews) also contributed to the city’s success.
