One of my favorite museums in Atlanta is the Michael C. Carlos Museum. The Carlos is not only phenomenal in its global collections, it's comprised of layer after layer of thoughtful detail. One detail that totally fascinates me is the floors in the Art of the Americas galleries.

The floors are absolutely brilliant...they tell you where in the world the artifacts you're viewing came from. Putting something into that kind of perspective, so simply and effectively, makes for an elevated museum experience.
You're guaranteed to be engulfed in the Americas galleries, challenging to not be given it's 2,300 artifacts. And they're separated geographically, keeping the artifacts' cultural significance intact.
Enjoy the Art of the Americas galleries at the Michael C. Carlos Museum, and remember to look down. The floors really are that cool.
