Museums and art galleries can be a real brain workout for regular folks. But fear not! Some genius folks out there decode ancient wisdom and simplify it so even us mere mortals can grasp it. Memes and old-school art might seem like an odd combo, but some museums and galleries are getting hip. They’ve given the green light to visitors snapping pics and sharing them on social media. It’s like turning an exclusive club into a friendly neighborhood hangout.

Take a look below at this hilarious list and cast your vote for the ones that tickle your funny bone the most.
