If you're an art lover and a Michigander, you don't have to travel too far to experience beautiful, moving art pieces. In fact, you don't even need to leave the state.

The Best Art Museums in the Country

USA Today is always putting together their "best of" lists. No matter what kind of "best" you might be looking for; beer, food, entertainment, and more; USA Today has a list for everything. And that includes 'best art museums'.

Sure, you've got places like the Smithsonian Institution, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and plenty of other big-name museums across the nation, all home to spectacular art. However, neither of those made the list as one of USA Today's 'best'. But one Michigan Museum of Art did.
