The worlds most famous museum which was once a royal palace, houses some of the worlds most amazing art. Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa is easily the most famous piece of art.
How did this happen? With so many different therioes and ideas you really just need to take a look for yourself, if you can elbow to the front of the crowd that stands in front of the glass and bulletproof enclosure.
Located on New York's Museum Mile road, The Met shares the same pavement as other big names. The size of this museum is enormous, so don't plan to see it all in one day- unless you get trapped inside overnight! You can go through ancient times to modern 20th-century works.
Also visit The Cloisters, which is the museums other site located in Fort Tryon Park and completed in 1938, it is a separate building dedicated solely to medieval art. The Cloisters has some of the most tranquil and scenic views of the Hudson River and nature in the city.
This is where the Sistine Chapel and Michelangelo's famous ceiling frescos are found. It also has work by some of the other greatest Renaissance artists within the Chapels walls. Displaying works from the extensive collection of the Roman Catholic Church and spanning from antiquity to modern religious art. The museum occupies a distance of 9 miles and is one of the largest in the world. This museum brings people from all over, it is estimated at four million visitors annually.
The walk to this museum is a gallery in and of itself. When you stroll through the Piazza della Signoria toward the Uffizi, you see such marvelous sculptures! Inside the museum you are treated to such masterpieces like Botticelli's "Birth of Venus" and "Primavera" as well as paintings by Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. The Botticelli's are, in my humble opinion, the prize of museum. With the most delicious gelato in the world, beautiful plazas and streets with so much history, it is easy to fall in love with the city of Florence!

Derek Ogilvie says he can read the minds of infants who are too young to communicate verbally.
Now he agrees to undergo a series of controlled experiments to test the limits of his alleged abilities.
He even faces the ultimate sceptic in the form of James Randi, an investigator of the paranormal who has offered $1million to anyone who can provide evidence of the supernatural.
Apparently. “I get little movies played to me, I really do, I’m not a liar, I really, really do,” pants the
Marshall Brain: How Stuff Works
He and the Web site he founded (HowStuffWorks.com) inspired the magazine you’re reading right now. He writes many of the articles you read here and online at the Express Web site and the HowStuffWorks Web site. In fact, you see his face on page three of every issue of Express. And you might have even seen him appearing on television on CNN Headline News, Modern Marvels, the National Geographic Channel and Oprah. But why is that?
To start the New Year, we’ve looked in our very own backyard to bring you one of our favorite extraordinary people -- Marshall Brain. Now you can find out how he works!
Not only is Marshall an extraordinary person, he’s done some pretty incredible things while investigating stuff for HowStuffWorks. For example, when we were writing about hot air balloons, Marshall went for a ride in one. He learned how they’re set up, how they lift off and how they land. Another time, Marshall took to the air again – this time it was for an article on skydiving. Yes, he actually jumped out of an airplane so that he could really learn how skydiving works. Now that’s what we call commitment!
A published author, notable national speaker and all-round great – and incredibly busy – guy, Marshall took time between lectures, articles and dismantling robots for an interview. Yeah, we were going to say something about him letting us pick his brain, but then that pun felt a little too obvious, so…without further ado, here’s what he had to say.
When did you become interested in how stuff works?
I was always the kid who would take things apart and drove his parents crazy. When I was a teenager, I liked to work on cars, build electronic stuff, things like that. But I got really obsessed with it for some reason in 1998, and that's when HowStuffWorks was born. What was the first thing you ever dismantled to see how it worked?
It's hard to say what the first thing was. But I have clear memories of taking my bike all the way apart when I was a kid. I can remember opening the coaster brake and having about a
