    Thanks for pointing these out. I’ve only been to a handful of these museums, but hopefully someday I will get to them all. The last time i had been the to Guggenheim, I thought it was fantastic, so that is one that I back up a lot.

    I really like all museums for inspiration on design. The shame is I don’t have one close by so I have to plan and take a day or two to visit. I have been to the tate modern now a few times and always come away feeling inspired and with a renewed creativity.

    Using museums to renew my on creativity is a great idea. The tate modern always has the ability to get me re-excited about design, and scrambling for a pencil and scrap of paper to jot down my ideas quick!

    Philadelphia Museum of Art has a great Modern and Contemporary wing … and many changing exhibitions to find inspiration!
