Όσο πλησιάζει το τέλος του 2015 όλοι προσπαθούμε να θυμηθούμε τι κάναμε τις 365 μέρες που πέρασαν, τις στιγμές που θυμόμαστε περισσότερο ή εκείνες που σπαταλήσαμε στα μέσα κοινωνικής δικτύωσης. Βέβαια, μπορεί να λέμε ότι το διαδίκτυο μπορεί να αποχαυνώνει, το Instagram βοήθησε το τμήμα τεχνών και πολιτισμού της HuffPost να διαπιστώσει ποια είναι τα πιο δημοφιλή μουσεία που επισκέπτεται ο κόσμος.
Πώς το έκανε αυτό; Μέσα από την τοποθεσία που είχαν βάλει οι χρήστες στις αναρτήσεις τους. Χάρη στο Instagram καταφέραμε να εντοπίσουμε τα 20 πιο δημοφιλή μουσεία από όλο τον κόσμο.
20. Rijksmuseum (Άμστερνταμ, Ολλανδία)
19. Μουσείο Βατικανού (Βατικανό)
Featured Artwork of the Day - Room of the Fire in the Borgo (1514-1517) The room was used in the time of Julius II (pontiff from 1503 to 1513) for the meetings of the highest court of the Holy See: the Segnatura Gratiae et Iustitiae, presided over by the Pope. The paintings on the ceiling, by Pietro Vannucci, called the Perugino, commissioned by the Pope in 1508, are related to this function. At the time of Leo X (pontiff from 1513 to1521) the room was used as a dining room and the task of frescoing the walls was assigned to Raphael who entrusted a large part of the work to his school. The work was completed between 1514 and 1517. The frescoes illustrate the political aspirations of Leo X through stories taken from the lives (narrated in the Liber Pontificalis) of two previous Popes with the same name: Leo III (Crowning of Charlemagne and Justification of Leo III) and Leo IV (Fire in the Borgo and the Battle of Ostia ). In all the episodes the Pope is a portrait of the reigning pontiff Leo X. Six seated figures of emperors and sovereigns who are protectors of the church are shown in the monochromes below the paintings. #vaticanmuseums #art #artworkoftheday
18. Getty Museum (Λος Άντζελες, Καλιφόρνια)
A #regram from @anika_ullah. We asked her what she was thinking in this moment, and her response was so lovely we wanted to share a piece of it. 🖼 Though she was facing a rough afternoon, she says she was thinking about how she felt a "sense of peace that cascaded through my veins upon the realization that I was finally looking at the real thing - not just the copy in my living room that I had spent 18 years of my life gazing at in wonder." #visitorstories #gettyinspired

We’ll only be looking up at Hintze Hall’s highest stairs for a short time, as the 2nd floor balcony closes for redevelopment from today. The balcony will reopen in Spring 2016, with new specimens and displays to see, including the newly-restored giant sequoia. Until then, we’re enjoying the opportunity to look up and get a new perspective from other parts of Hintze Hall. #NaturalHistory #Museum #stairs #architecture #London #NHM #lookup
10. Victoria & Albert Museum (Λονδίνο, Αγγλία)
9. Centre Pompidou (Παρίσι, Γαλλία)
8. British Museum (Λονδίνο, Αγγλία)
In Mexico, on 1 and 2 November, which are the Roman Catholic Church’s All Saints’ and All Souls’ Days, the spirits of the dead are invited to the world of the living. At home and in cemeteries, the family and friends of these spirits make offerings of flowers, incense, food, drink and light. Offerings vary according to individual families (and the dead they remember). However, candles and flowers are always present. During the #DaysOfTheDead festival at the British Museum, the colonnade was adorned with over five thousand marigolds, as well as flickering candles and copal incense, and a dramatic video projection. Together these evoked the multi-sensory Day of the Dead altar on a monumental scale. #mxuk2015 #Mexico #diasdelosmuertos
