Courtesy Mark RyanToday is the beginning of Minnesota Museums Month, a celebration of the more than 600 museums in the state. Part of the celebration is the Twin Cities' hosting of the American Association of Museums conference convening this week at the Minneapolis Convention Center, where museum (and zoo) folks from around the country come to exchange new ideas with their colleagues, and see the latest exhibition and technological innovations. And to just get together to celebrate the world of museums.

My favorites here in Minnesota include the Science Museum (of course), the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and the Bell Museum, but there are several hundred I haven't seen. What about you? Do you have a favorite Minnesota museum (or zoo)? Even if you don't live in or have never been to Minnesota, do you have a favorite museum somewhere else? Let us know your favorite museum, zoo, or special exhibit.
