If you are planning a trip, consider spending some of your well-deserved break time at one of the world’s most interesting museums and special exhibitions.
Other interesting museums that are slated to debut in the second half of 2015 include:
• Kunsthaus Dahlem in Berlin, dedicated to postwar European art and culture (www.kunsthaus-dahlem.de
• the long-awaited National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. (www.nmaahc.si.edu
• the Ikea museum at the site of its first retail store in Almhult, Sweden (www.ikea.com
• the Ringling Museum, which features multiple displays on the vast estate in Sarasota, Fla. It unites fine art and circus history in one of the finest museums in America.
And, if you are going to a hotel or resort, you will find fine art in the lobby, rooms and conference areas. If you set sail , you may be surprised to learn that a number of cruise ships also feature art onboard — ranging from antique to contemporary — including Celebrity, Regent, Oceania and Holland America.
