The most anticipated, and beautifully designed, museums opening in 2017
The Spaces is a digital publication that covers architecture, design and art.
Nothing kick-starts a city like a new museum. Major cultural projects were a little thin on the ground in 2016, but 2017 will be a busy year in the international art calendar.
As well as esoteric destinations like Washington's Museum of the Bible and Marrakesh's mecca for fans of YSL style, there are a host of cities and countries getting their first major modern art gallery, everywhere from South Africa to Canada and Abu Dhabi. Here's a selection of new museums opening in 2017.
See seven of this year's best new museums in the gallery above, and head to The Spaces for more debuts.
