If you've ever dreamed of embarking upon a "grand tour" of the world's most magnificent museums, consider this spectacular 10"x13" coffee-table book your travel guide. Arrayed across its pages are breathtaking photographs of the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, a structure built without right angles; the Danish Jewish Museum in Copenhagen, designed to reflect the Hebrew concept of "Mitzvah"; the Heydar Aliyev Center in Azerbaijan, its exterior shaped like a wave; the de Young Museum in San Francisco, covered in copper that will turn green over time and help the building blend into the surrounding trees; and three dozen more cultural palaces. Accompanied by brief captions written in English, French, Spanish, and German, the architectural marvels celebrated in Museums are outshined only by the staggering scope of the treasures within.
