Any listing of the world's great art museums should include the Art Institute of Chicago.

I wouldn't really call the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC famous. Should replace that answer simply with the Smithsonian. I know it's a group of museums, but, still would be better.

I wasn't aware that National Gallery of Art in D.C. is not really famous. Because to me, its collections of the art of the Renaissance and of later periods can only be matched in USA by the Met.

If you're looking to internationalise the list a bit, might I recommend MASP in Sao Paulo, the National Palace Museum in Taipei and, although it might stretch the definition of 'gallery' a bit, the 798 Art District in Beijing.

Super idea for a quiz. Forgot about the Musee d'Orsay and couldn't spell Uffizi right.

MoMa was one of the best museums I’ve ever been to.

Guggenheim museum (New York) wasn’t as good as the hype suggested. The building is spectacular, but the work inside was a little lacklustre.

State Russian museum's common name is just Russian museum. Can you accept this, please?
