Not convinced that museums can be cool? Check these out, then get back to me!
Video Game Museum
The International Center for the History of Electronic Games is in Rochester, NY, and has just about every game you might want to play. Oh, and bonus? You’re actually allowed to play them! Sure, there are a few super rare items behind glass, but most of this place is totally hands-on!
Jelly Bean Museum
If you love jellybeans like I love jellybeans, you won’t want to miss the mini jellybean museum inside the Jelly Belly factory in Fairfield, CA. Sure, there are only a handful of portraits made out of jellybeans, but it’s still one of the best things you’ll ever see in your life. Pinkie swear.
Rock and Roll Museum
Cleveland’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is maybe one of the coolest museums in the world. If you go, you can see everything from Katy Perry’s peppermint pinwheel dress to a guitar that John Lennon used to play. There’s seriously something here for everybody, and if your guy doesn’t want to go with you, I do!
The Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art isn’t just something you should see with your girlfriends (although there are tons of gorgeous dresses on display to drool at!). They also have original punk rock outfits from 1970s London and costumes from Braveheart. Win. Win. Win.
Prehistoric Wonder Museum
One of the coolest museums I’ve ever been to is in the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles. Not only is it insane to think about saber toothed tigers and wooly mammoths wandering the streets of Downtown L.A. (they seriously used to!) but there are really fun hills to roll down when you’re tired of being inside.
