A world tour of museums should include Los Angeles
It sounds pricy but a lot of fun - going on a museum tour of the world could be a great way of learning something about art and history, as well as sating travelling appetites for the year (hopefully, at any rate). If you don't know where to begin your trip, consider booking a stay in a Los Angeles hostel, as the city's California Science Center is being used as the first gallery for the tour of Mummies of the World: The Dream of Eternal Life.

Jaunted, a pop culture travel guide, noted that this exhibit is likely to be the one that all and sundry are talking about, which suggests that if you're artistically inclined, it isn't a show to miss. Although, if you do find that you don't have time to fit it into your travel agenda, then it's possible you'll catch it elsewhere as it's going off on a three-year trip around the US.

Once that's done and dusted, it's just a short leap across the pond to London and The Real Van Gogh: The Artist and His Letters. The website stated that this display is so good because, not only are there 65 drawings and 30 paintings from the master to spend time poring over, but 35 letters that are very rarely seen have also been included.

"It's an unusual glimpse into his complex, talented mind," it was observed.

And from there, Paris and the Pompidou Centre is just a hop, skip and a jump away. You'll be able to check out Lucian Freud - The Studio, which - Expatica recently brought to my attention - is hosting a collection of his works for the first time since 1987.
