Top Seven Travel Tips for Art Lovers


If you are an art lover, one of the best ways to experience a new city is by visiting its museums. From modern art to ancient artifacts, there are so many different genres of fine art that can be found in every corner of the world. Here are seven tips for making sure that your travels allow you to see as much of them as possible:

A city’s art museums are one of its most valuable resources.

  • Art museums are one of a city’s most valuable resources.
  • They’re also great places to learn about a city’s history, culture and art.
  • You can find art museums all over the world!

Plan ahead.

Plan ahead.

  • Plan ahead and save time. You can save yourself a lot of hassle by planning your trip in advance, and it’s especially important if you’re going on an art tour or making other types of travel plans that involve buses, trains or planes. For example, if you know that there is only one train from Florence to Venice at 7:00 am each day (and it’s sold out), then having an alternate route planned out will ensure that nothing goes wrong when all the tickets sell out and everyone has to go home empty handed because they didn’t have any backup plans!
  • Plan ahead and save money too! By booking early, not only will you be able to get better deals but also avoid crowds while traveling during peak season which means less waiting around at ticket counters/train stations etc., more time spent enjoying yourself instead 🙂

Check out the websites of each museum you plan to visit.

Before you go to a museum, it’s always a good idea to check out their website. Each museum has its own unique collection and style, so it can be helpful to see what is on display before you arrive. You’ll also be able to find out about any special events or exhibits that may be taking place during your visit–and if there are any pop-up shops or cafes inside the museum itself.

The next step is using Google Maps (or another mapping app) and zooming in on where exactly this place is located. You might want some extra time for transportation between sites if they’re far apart!

Look into getting a membership or special pass to a venue before you go.

Before you go, look into getting a membership or special pass to a venue before you go. If you’re staying in town for awhile, this could save money on admission fees and give you access to other perks like discounts on travel accommodations and local transportation. Memberships are also great because they can be used at multiple museums within the same city or region–so if your first choice isn’t available due to weather or some other reason, there may still be others nearby where they’ll let you use it!

If you are traveling with children, make sure their needs are taken care of.

When you’re traveling with children, make sure their needs are taken care of. If they are hungry or tired, they will not be able to enjoy the art as much as they would if their basic needs were met first.

  • Make sure the kids have something to eat and drink: You can stop at a café before entering a museum or gallery so that everyone has something in their stomachs while they look around. This will help them stay focused on what’s going on instead of being distracted by hunger pains or thirst pangs (and possibly causing a scene).
  • Make sure children can see the art: Sometimes there are displays that aren’t designed for younger audiences; if this is the case, consider asking an attendant how close children are allowed to get–and then do exactly that! It will make all the difference when it comes time for your child’s report card grade later down the road…or maybe even just give him/her bragging rights over his/her friends who didn’t get up close enough during their visit here today.”

Take advantage of the freebies at tourist sites like this one in Philadelphia.

While you’re touring the sights, be sure to take advantage of any freebies that are offered. Often times museums and other tourist destinations have maps available for visitors. These maps can be helpful for navigating around town as well as pointing out some interesting facts about what you’re seeing.

Another popular form of freebie is a brochure or guidebook that highlights local attractions and events happening in the area. You might find coupons inside these guides too! Or maybe they’ll just give you an idea on where else to go after your tour is over. In addition, there may also be discounts on food or drinks available at nearby restaurants (or even tours) when using one of these guides from a museum or landmark site–so don’t forget about those either!

Make sure you don’t miss any special exhibits or events taking place during your trip.

  • Check the websites of the museums you plan to visit. They often have special exhibits and events taking place during your trip, so it’s important that you don’t miss out on these opportunities.
  • If there are any museums on your itinerary, be sure to visit them! You’ll want to make sure that your plans fit in with what’s happening at each location.
  • If traveling with children, make sure their needs are taken care of before leaving home so they can enjoy their time abroad as much as possible. One way this can be accomplished is by preparing an itinerary ahead of time–this will help keep everyone organized while also keeping everyone safe!

Make sure that you know about all of the great art museums that are on your itinerary!

When you’re planning your next trip, make sure that you know about all of the great art museums that are on your itinerary. You can find out about these museums by looking at their websites and checking out their current exhibitions. If there is an exhibition that interests you, try to get a membership or special pass to a venue before going so that it’s easier for you to get into the museum when it opens!
