The California Museum of Sciences is a magnificent structure, by Architect Renzo Piano, that houses the Kimball Natural History Museum, Steinhart aquarium, the Morrison planetarium AND a tropical forest habitat! The reptile collection is worth coming alone – even if just for Claude the albino alligator!
Mexico City’s Museo Nacional de Antropología is a wonderful achievement of modern architecture to house some of the most significant achievements of Mexican culture and heritage. World class and a must see for any visitor to Mexico DF !
A small side stop next to the Arasta Bazaar is the Great Palace Mosaic Museum Museum. There, restored and displayed, are a myriad of Byzantine mosaics that used to decorate the pavement of a peristyle courtyard circa (r. 527-565). Quite interesting in terms of style and complexity.
