1. San Francisco International Airport

San Francisco
The SFO Museum has been bringing art to the airport's terminals since 1980. Before going through international security, check out the glass works by Louis C. Tiffany – our favourite is the one-of-a-kind Zinnia lamp – and trip out over the psychedelic rock concert posters created by local artists between 1966 and 1971.

2. Toronto Pearson International Airport

Terminal 1's Malton Airport Gallery explores Canadian art as well as history, showcasing everything from wooden dolls and trucks from the Canadian Toy Collector Society to contemporary works by Toronto artists. Drop by before the end of March to check out Time Flies: The Airport at 75, an exhibit charting the evolution of Pearson over the years.

3. Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport

In Mumbai's newly renovated Terminal 2, the Jaya He project offers a comprehensive introduction to Indian art. The airport has an in-house curator, designer Rajeev Sethi, who has selected some 7,000 artifacts and artworks for display – and carefully carved out contemplative spaces to display them. Occupying about 232,000 square feet, Layered Narratives, a series of installations about Mumbai and urban India, is hard to miss.

4. Miami International Airport
