You Had to Be There


Although 2014 saw the opening of a new generation of camera-ready museums—the Perez, the Aspen Art Museum, and the renovated Cooper Hewitt—the most geotagged institutions of the year on Instagram were of an older school, i.e. the ageless Musée du Louvre and New York’s iconic Museum of Modern Art. Here are the 10 most geotagged museums of 2014 in order, with some of our favorite Insta images of the year—because if you didn’t post about it, were you even there?
