I would recommend the Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art in Salisbury, MD. It is especially good if you are interested in wild birds and decoys and woodcarving.

I enjoyed the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn mentioned in prior post. And have heard good things about the submarine / coast guard museum in Muskegon Mi.

Tour the Silversides Submarine, Coast Guard Cutter Mclane, and the USS SILVERSIDES Submarine Museum - school and scout groups - muskegon museums

Someone above mentioned the High Desert Museum outside Bend, Oregon and I'd second that one for sure. Also the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum outside of Tucson, which is fabulous. Plan on spending a whole day there. The Astoria Maritime Museum is Astoria, Oregon is very well done, as is the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center near Baker City, Oregon. And if you're in Seattle, don't miss Boeing's Museum of Flight!

Santa Fe, New Mexico has many Museums. All pretty neat, Museum of Indian Arts and Culture is one & the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum is another.

Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, a Unesco World Heritage Site located in Alberta, Canada near Fort Macleod has a neat museum plus the open air site.

The New Mexico Museum of Space History in Alamogordo was neat when visited some years ago.

In Las Cruces: NM Farm & Ranch Museum and on the NMSU campus, the Zuhl Museum is the home of the Zuhl Collection containing over 1,800 beautiful specimens of petrified wood, fossils and minerals.

The Getty Center in Los Angeles presents the Getty's collection of European and American art from the Middle Ages to the present against a backdrop of dramatic architecture, tranquil gardens, and breathtaking views.

The Getty Villa in Malibu is an educational center and museum dedicated to the study of the arts and cultures of ancient Greece, Rome, and Etruria.

The Norton Simon Museum is another really great museum to see in the Los Angles area in Pasadena. It's a great smaller art museum with the most significant collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art in Southern California. Reflections of modern life captured by Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Edgar Degas, who alone is represented by over one hundred works of art, are displayed alongside the vibrant palettes of Vincent van Gogh, Paul Cézanne and Paul Gauguin. Complementing these works are Auguste Rodin’s monumental bronze sculptures, which are displayed in the Museum’s front garden. Paintings by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres and Francisco de Goya mark the beginning of the 19th century and lead to superb examples of mid-century Realism executed by Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Gustave Courbet and Édouard Manet. Outstanding paintings by Édouard Vuillard and Pierre Bonnard carry us right to the doorstep of 20th-century Modernism. A must see!

Also neat: Los Angeles County Art Museum and Page Museum - La Brea Tar Pits.
