Cultures and civilizations are the focus of many of the world's most prominent and best visited museums. The British Museum, "dedicated to human history and culture", achieved 5,575,946 (5.5 million) visitors in 2012, ranking as the most visited museum in London.

Consider the various approaches of the following museums to the subjects of cultures and civilizations:

-The Museum of World Culture, or Varldskultur Museerna (Gothenburg, Sweden), provides interdisciplinary interpretation of world cultures

-The Asian Civilisations Museum (Singapore), presents a broad yet integrated perspective of pan-Asian cultures and civilizations

-The Museum of New Mexico (Santa Fe, NM), five units covering indigenous cultures, anthropology, art, history and international folk traditions

-Ellis Island National Monument and Immigration Museum (New York City), a monument and education center about the immigrant histories and diverse peoples of the United States

-The Field Museum (Chicago, IL), an educational institution concerned with the diversity and relationships in nature and among cultures
