Other outstanding museums

American - National History (New York, USA)
Anthropology (Mexico City, Mexico)
Deutsches (Munich)
Egyptian (Cairo, Egypt)
Imperial War (London, England)
National (Athens, Greece)
New Acropolis (Athens, Greece)
Pergamon (Berlin, Germany)

and Tokyo National (Tokyo, Japan).
