Museums of the World

  • Aarondale Community 6929 Matthew Place Springfield, VA, 22151 United States (map)

The term "Museum" means a temple or place dedicated to the Muses, ancient Greek divinities of the arts.  And since the 18th century, these first and sometimes palatial structures continue to be where collections of artistic, cultural, or scientifically significant items are both researched and displayed for the enlightenment of the public. Many such museums are well-known throughout the world, and this fall, Dr. Roger Koment will guide you through six of the most iconic of these, focusing on the history and unique cultural artifacts of each.
