4 mins read

The FINANCIAL — TripAdvisor, the travel site that helps you find the latest reviews and lowest prices, on September 19 announced the winners of its Travelers’ Choice awards for Museums.

Award winners were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for museums worldwide, gathered over a 12-month period. TripAdvisor has also highlighted top-rated bookable tours and passes on the site and the cost of admission for each winning museum.

“As a traveler, exploring a famous museum or discovering a new one can be the highlight of a trip,” said Brooke Ferencsik, senior director of communications for TripAdvisor. “This year’s Travelers’ Choice Museum award winners belong on your must-visit list. To beat the crowds at these popular attractions, travelers should consider booking a skip-the-line pass or taking a small group tour to save time and make the most of their visit.”
