The Top Ten Best Museums to Visit on Easter:
1.Ukrainian Easter Egg Museum
Ukraine might be having some problems right now, to put it lightly, but it’s home to the only museum in the world dedicated to the Ukrainian easter egg (pysanka) that also happens to be in a egg-shaped building.
2.Germany’s Easter Egg Museum
Easter eggs originated in Germany so it’s more than appropriate that the country has an Ostereimuseum with over 900 eggs on display.
3.Museum of Russian Icons
You got to give a shout out to Orthodox Easter with this Massachusetts museum that has over 500 icons and artifacts spanning over six centuries in its collection.
A couple converted their Pasadena home into a museum of quirky collectibles, now numbering 28,000 bunnies. There’s even a giant bunny bush in front of the building.
5.Cathedral Buffet’s Life of Christ Display
If you happen to be in Ohio and you’re hungry, why not go to this Christian restaurant, which has thirteen miniature dioramas of Jesus’ life in its basement.
6.Cyclorama of Jerusalem
Open since the 1950s, visitors can experience what the city of Jerusalem looked like during the crucifixion of Jesus Christ with one of the world’s largest circular paintings (in Quebec of all places).
Alabama is one of America’s most religious states, so it’s not a surprise there is an attraction with hundreds of home-made crosses warning the people out there who have yet to be saved.
This famous art installation made of adobe, straw, and thousands of gallons of paint was created by a local artist who found the Lord Jesus Christ in the 1960s. Remember Jesus Is The Way.
9.Desert Christ Park
Speaking of California outdoor art, the state is also home to a collection of 40 all-plaster Jesus statues, with the main highlight being a massive “last supper”.
10.Nun Doll Museum
I know nuns don’t automatically make you think of Easter, but Cross in the Woods is a National Catholic Shrine located in Northern Michigan that is home not only to the world’s largest crucifix but also a collection of over 500 nun dolls. So why not make a day out of it!
