Description:
Art museums of all types around the world
Expanded Description:
All cultures have art in some form. From ancient times we have found ways to preserve art for others to enjoy. Who knows when the first museum was established? Now these museums can be found in most countries in the world, from simple one-room museums to cultural treasures housing thousands of art objects worth a fortune.

All museums that primarily exhibit art of any type may be included in this category. They may be devoted to a particular medium such as painting, sculpture, photography or wood carving; they may be devoted to a particular genre such as oriental art or Egyptian art; they may be devoted to a particular artist. Many will be combine many types of art. Whatever the theme, they will find a place in this category. Additionally museums may be operated by a public entity such as a nation, state or city; or they may be affiliated with an academic institution, other organization, or may be privately owned. Again, they are all welcome in this category.

EXCLUSIONS:

Keep in mind that many other types of museums feature art of various types, but only museums whose primary identity is that of an art museum should be included here.

Also excluded are galleries that are of a primarily commercial in nature, that is featuring items for sale.

Temporary exhibits not in a permanent museum location should not be included here.

Instructions for Posting a Art Museums Waymark:
** Name: The name of the museum and its location should be included in the title. Generally this should be the city/town, state and/or country -- whatever is appropriate to its location.

The name of the museum and location in the title should be separated by a space dash space, as in this example:

Currier Museum of Art - Manchester, NH

1. Coordinates obtained from your personal GPS readings.
These should be taken from the main entrance to the museum If this is impossible for any reason, please state this in your description.

2. At least TWO original photographs -- a view showing the entire museum, or major portion thereof (this should be the default photo), and a close-up clearly showing a sign with the name of the museum. If there is no such sign, please state such and this requirement is waived, of course. GPSr photo is NOT required.

3. Narrative description -- Include as much information about this particular museum as you can, especially its unique features, history, etc. Rather than try to list every type of museum in the variables, include the details here -- the museum's theme, genre, type, specialty, etc. In other words, what type of art is on display here is what we're looking for. Waymarks with no description will be returned for resubmission.

SPECIAL NOTE: While the details outlined in our category description, and the requirements listed in the posting instructions, cover the MINIMUM elements and standards for all waymarks in this category, each waymark will also be evaluated by a volunteer reviewer for overall quality and appropriateness. If a reviewer deems that there are deficiencies in some aspect of the waymark, the waymark may be either declined or accepted with request for changes and/or additions in either content or format.

Each waymark will be evaluated on its own merits. We will endeavor to be reasonable and flexible while maintaining the quality standards for the category. If there is a disagreement, try to work it out with the evaluating officer, or appeal to the group leader, but we reserve the right to accept or decline a waymark based on our best judgement.

LANGUAGE NOTE: We recognize waymarking as a global hobby and welcome waymarks from all countries. Because of our international scope, we also acknowledge ENGLISH as our lingua franca. English will create the highest level of accessibility globally. All waymarks must have at least a short description in ENGLISH. We encourage bilingual and multilingual waymarks, but one of the languages must be English. We have volunteer translators to help.

Relying on software or internet based translators, such as Babylon and Google Translate, may NOT yield accurate translations that are intelligible. Use these only when there is no alternative. Although we do not expect grammatical perfection, a waymark may be declined if there the English language is not understandable.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
Post one photo of the museum that is a different view from the one on the page, and describe your visit. Add any additional information that you may have about this building. A GPSr photo is NOT required.
