Given the available cheap travel options, such as cheap fares, cheap airplane tickets, discount hotel rooms, cheap auto rentals, discount travel deals, and cheap vacation packages, 2014 would be a good year to check out some of the world’s most interesting museums.

The following museums which feature striking architecture and thought provoking exhibits that benefit their neighborhoods by attracting new lodgings, restaurants, and galleries, according to Smarter Travel:

• Perez Art Museum in Miami, Florida is Miami’s newest art installation. Leafy columns of jungle plants grow down the museum’s ivory and glass eaves, creating the appearance of green pillars. Blue water laps the adjacent shores. Visitors congregate on the grass lawn to take in the beauty. Inside you can view Hew Locke’s exhibit of watery vessels suspended from the rafters facing the sea. Ai Weiwei’s irreverent sculptures of creatures is another must see exhibit.

• Red Star Line Museum in Antwerp, Belgium shares the stories of emigrants who took the Red Star Line from Europe to North America. The museum is located on the grounds of the old Red Star Line shipping company, whose tower and adjoining warehouses served as central departure points for 2 million emigrants from all over Europe from 1873 to 1934. Many parents were forced to leave their children behind to join the great European migration.

• Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida challenges the eye and the mind, as life imitates the artist whose works it celebrates. The museum also pays homage to Spain’s Catalonian museum. Dali Museum is currently exhibiting a traveling (through April 26th) collection of works of Andy Warhol who was heavily influenced by the Spanish master.

• City of the Ocean in Biarritz, France is shaped like the contours of waves with a plunging concave roof. It opened last summer to celebrate the ecology of surf. The museum exhibits look at the ocean’s depths to understand how waves form. Another popular exhibit follows explorers and their discoveries at the polar caps.

• Museum of Innocence in Istanbul, Turkey was created by a Nobel Prize winning author who named the museum after his novel of the same name. The museum is organized according to the book’s chapters and focuses on 1970’s Istanbul. Here the cultures that bridges East and West are explored.

• Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas is one of the newest and finest American art museums. Financed by Walmart heiress Alice Walton, this museum showcases art in magnificent pavilions around creek fed lakes. A museum hotel (21c) has opened just steps away from Crystal Bridges and displays edgy 21st century sculptures, paintings, and multimedia art.

• Astrup Fearnley Museet in Oslo, Norway reopened at the end of 2012 featuring an impressive Renzo Piano design and is now the city’s gathering point. The museum’s collection pushes the boundaries of contemporary art. A sculpture park is next to the museum and you can ride up a glass elevator referred to as the “Sneak Peak” for great views of the harbor. The surroundings streets are filled with art galleries, eateries, and a city beach.

• BioMuseo in Panama City, Panama is now partially opened. Cruisers passing through the Panama Canal can see the BioMuseu’s roof comprised of a chaotic geometric pattern of primary reds, blues, greens, and yellows. An open air atrium focuses on the nature and biodiversity of Panama and includes aquariums and gardens.

• National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul Korea opened in November of 2013 and is currently hosting a Masterpieces of Modern Korean Painting exhibition displaying works from 1920s to the 1970s: a time of tremendous change, hardship, and challenge in the country’s history.

2014 will be one of the best years for new museum openings including:

• The National Center for Civil and Human Rights is scheduled to open in early summer in Atlanta. It will present the history of the Civil Rights struggle, celebrate progress, and confront ongoing issues.

• The newly renovated and expanded Harvard Art Museums complex is expected to open this fall.

• The Broad is anticipating a late 2014 opening and will feature postwar and contemporary art in an impressive waffled building in downtown Los Angeles.
