On Tuesday, TripAdvisor announced this year’s Traveler’s Choice awards for the best museums in the U.S. and around the world.

Based on thousands of user reviews and ratings, these cultural sites represent the very best the country has to offer in the worlds of art, history and sciences. Award winners were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of reviews for museums around the world, gathered over a 12-month period.

And while every city in the U.S. has something unique to offer tourists, New York City leads the way with three museum spots on the top 10 list. The Big Apple's very own Metropolitan Museum of Art also captured the highly coveted title of best museum in the world.
