When my husband and I first started dating, he shared a confession: He didn't like museums. He thought they were "boring." I couldn't even believe what I was hearing! I am a museum nerd. I absolutely love them and to me, they are anything but boring. The art! The ambiance! The history! The low cost! What's not to love??
To me, museums are perfect for a day or evening date for the following reasons:
- They are cheap. Most museums you can get in for free if you go on the right day or the right time. If they're not free, they are usually pretty cheap and at least you are supporting the advancement of the arts. Um, sexy!
- You are surrounded by beautiful things (and tons of photo opportunities).
- There are an endless amount of conversation topics that allow you to go beneath the surface. Woo your boo with your charming intellect!
- It's a low-key, but classy environment with a definite element of romance.
