Extraordinary museums

Arriving in a new town or city, heading for the hotel and preparing for your meeting is a familiar experience. But for some business travelers, their trip is only complete when they’ve found a few hours spare to take in a local museum or two. Here are some of the most extraordinary.

South Tyrol, Italy: The magic mountains
Italian Reinhold Messner’s eponymous Messner Mountain Museum is a network of six fabulous mountain museums in South Tyrol and Belluno, Italy. Some are in historic buildings, others in new, innovative design-led structures. www.messner-mountain-museum.it

Pennsylvania, USA: Stunning architecture
Frank Lloyd Wright’s Falling Water might now be more than 80 years old, but its sheer brilliance ensures it retains its magic and allure. The south-west Pennsylvania mountains are a backdrop to a cantilevered house built atop a waterfall. www.fallingwater.org

Cancun, Mexico: Underwater wonders
Love water and love museums? Then, MUSA (Museo Subacuático de Arte) is for you. Located near the coast of Cancun, Isla Mujeres and Punta Nizuc, south-eastern Mexico, awed visitors see sculptures via glass-bottom boats and scuba diving. www.musamexico.org

London, England: London’s natural history
From splendid neo-Romanesque architecture to quality artefacts, London’s Natural History Museum has entranced visitors since it opened in 1881. The stunning central hall leads visitors to oceans, human evolution, space or dinosaurs’ exhibitions. www.nhm.ac.uk

Colorado, USA: Dinosaur heaven
This wonderful Colorado museum brings together kids and adults in a common understanding to show why dinosaurs still have that wow! factor. Go on trails, see genuine dinosaur tracks, footprints and bones, all in situ. www.dinoridge.org
