My family will travel out of our way to see a well regarded art museum. For example, there isn't a lot to see in Bilbao, but the Guggenheim is certainly worth looking at, both for its architecture and its collection. The Des Moines museum is smaller but ticks those boxes as well. In addition, it also places local and lesser known artists within the context of the art historical canon, and its examples of more prominent artists are often of the highest quality. For its scale, it ranks right up there with the Guggenheim and the Tate Modern.
