That which, perhaps, hears more nonsense than anything in the world, is a picture in a museum.

Edmond de Goncourt, writer

The Louver is a morgue; you go there to identify your friends.

Jean Cocteau, director

Museums are tombs, and it looks like everything is turning into a museum.

Robert Smithson, artist

In museums and palaces we are alternate radicals and conservatives.

Henry James, writer

Nothing seems more like a whorehouse to me than a museum. In it you find the same equivocal aspect, the same frozen quality.

Michel Leiris,

Museums and art stores are also sources of pleasure and inspiration. Doubtless it will seem strange to many that the hand unaided by sight can feel action, sentiment, beauty in the cold marble; and yet it is true that I derive genuine pleasure from touching great works of art. As my finger tips trace line and curve, they discover the thought and emotion which the artist has portrayed.

Helen Keller, author

I went to the museum where they had all the heads and arms from the statues that are in all the other museums.

Steven Wright, comedian

Attitudes to museums have changed. If it had Marilyn Monroe's knickers or Laurence Olivier's jockstrap they would flock to it.

Jonathan Miller, entertainer

I love England though; I've been back a few times and just love it. My favorite thing to do there is going to museums and all the castles. Oh, and my husband and I went mountain biking across England on our honeymoon!

Catherine Bell, model

The Museum is not meant either for the wanderer to see by accident or for the pilgrim to see with awe. It is meant for the mere slave of a routine of self-education to stuff himself with every sort of incongruous intellectual food in one indigestible meal.

G. K. Chesterton, writer

Museums, museums, museums, object-lessons rigged out to illustrate the unsound theories of archaeologists, crazy attempts to co-ordinate and get into a fixed order that which has no fixed order and will not be co-coordinated! It is sickening! Why must all experience be systematized? A museum is not a first-hand contact: it is an illustrated lecture. And what one wants is the actual vital touch.

D. H. Lawrence, novelist

Museums, I love museums.

Tony Randall, actor

Our universities and museums are respected around the country.

Jane Byrne, politician

Museums are just a lot of lies, and the people who make art their business are mostly imposters. We have infected the pictures in museums with all our stupidities, all our mistakes, all our poverty of spirit. We have turned them into petty and ridiculous things.

Pablo Picasso, painter

Individually, museums are fine institutions, dedicated to the high values of preservation, education and truth; collectively, their growth in numbers points to the imaginative death of this country.

Robert Hewison, historian

I open events for museums and I do charity work and photography.

Bill Wyman, musician

What other people may find in poetry or art museums, I find in the flight of a good drive.

Arnold Palmer, athlete

We talk about theatre museums filled with old costumes and things. What we also need is a theatre museum of the old routines on videotape. We are only the custodians of those techniques, and they should be preserved.

Jim Dale, musician

Instead of stubbornly attempting to use surrealism for purposes of subversion, it is necessary to try to make of surrealism something as solid, complete and classic as the works of museums.

Salvador Dali, painter

I love doing normal things - movies, shopping, going out with friends, writing, reading, taking hot bubble baths - that's a big one for relaxation. I also love to go to art and history museums.

Christina Aguilera, musician

Even though the museums guarding their precious property fence everything off, in my own studio, I made them so you and I could walk in and around, and among these sculptures.

George Segal, actor

The number of great museums and nonprofits versus the number of corporate headquarters is incredibly out of whack.

Richard Stengel,

Being in America isn't old-hat - it's where we're from - but I get excited to be in other parts of the world like Athens and Croatia, which were quite cool. I'm a sightseer. I go see the sights and museums. I'm into that kind of thing.

Richie Sambora, musician

It's hardly even noticeable that so many artists, designers and architects live here. It isn't reflected in the cityscape or in the museums. Many of the artists, for example, exhibit around the world, just not in Berlin.

Olafur Eliasson, artist

Murals in restaurants are on a par with the food in museums.

Peter De Vries, novelist

I love museums but I don't want to live in one.

Tim Cook, businessman

I'm going to start these art museums that are basically converted homes, and I have one for modern art, and I have one for 19th century European art, and one for French impressionism. I've got Japanese.

Larry Ellison, businessman

I never can pass by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York without thinking of it not as a gallery of living portraits but as a cemetery of tax-deductible wealth.

Lewis H. Lapham, editor

There are wonderful museums with lots of photographs of 1920's musicals.

Julie Harris, actress

The best museums and museum exhibits about science or technology give you the feeling that, hey, this is interesting, but maybe I could do something here, too.

Paul Allen, businessman

The museums and parks are graveyards above the ground- congealed memories of the past that act as a pretext for reality.

Robert Smithson, artist

History is representational, while time is abstract; both of these artifices may be found in museums, where they span everybody's own vacancy.

Robert Smithson, artist

If you're middle aged... where're you going to go to meet someone? You're not going to go to a bar, you're not going to go to a night club; and there are the museums.

Elizabeth Perkins, actress
