For many over 40 travellers, one of the key aspects of going on holiday is to appreciate the local culture, within this art is key. There are few things more rewarding than to huddle into the warmth of a museum or gallery and marvel at the creative genius of former times – or contemporary artists – especially if the weather outside is far from clement.

Art Museum

Visiting a major museum whether it be the universally known Tate Modern or Louvre, or the regionally specific, such as the Antwerp Museum of Modern Art will ensure your vacation is more rewarding.

Art Gallery

Smaller galleries with specific specialism are also well worth visiting. Many of these are free to enter, or are included in a 24-hour or 48-hour city cultural and transport pass, such as exist in Stockholm and Amsterdam, and are well worth purchasing.
