THE LOUVRE
Paris
There are always long lines at the door but it's worth the wait to see the world's greatest and most famous museum. Leonardo DaVinci's Mona Lisa is the star, but there are literally thousands of other treasures of human civilization, from Egypt, Asia, ancient Greece and Rome.
THE HERMITAGE
ST. PETERSBURG
This gigantic museum has the world's largest collection of paintings. It's a stunning place, covering the history of the world from the Stone Age to present times, and especially impressive are the Golden Rooms with their golden gems.
THE BRITISH MUSEUM
London
This museum has millions of works of art from all over the world. Its galleries are devoted to Egypt, Greece, Roman civilization, Asia, Africa, and medieval Europe, tracing human history and culture. The highlight is the Elgin Marbles that once decorated the Parthenon in Athens.
THE EGYPTIAN MUSEUM
Cairo
As you'd expect, here you'll find the most complete collection of Egyptian art in the world. Among the thousands of treasures (which includes the popular Mummy Room) are the famous artifacts from Tutankhamun's tomb.

      I haven't been to any of these, but I am not giving up hope yet. I'll be doing more traveling around the US in the next few years, so I may be able to get to some of the one's here. Thanks for a very informative hub.

      Gags, a couple of other good ones are The Wax Museum in Philly and the Philadelphia Art Museum. Philly has a lot of history to offer. I was fortunate to grow up there from age 8-14. School field trips were awesome!

      Even tho I live in Florida, I've never been to St. Augustine, which is one of the oldest cities in America (not mentioned in your list). I've been to St. Pete but haven't visited the museum you cite. I must add it to my bucket list. I hear it's awesome and holds a lot of historical beauty.

      Thank you for this list. It's very informative.

      The British and Egyptian Museums would be my first choice. I am highly fascinated by British History and Ancient Egyptian artifacts.
