    It was once that the art inside a museum was the main attraction. These days, the art can sometimes become a sideshow to the building itself. Internationally renowned architects are now competing to design some of the world's most spectacular museums. Here is a look at some of our favorites starting with the latest addition, the new <a href="http://www.salvadordalimuseum.org/" target="external">Salvador Dali Museum</a> in St. Petersburg, Fla.

    Design firm <a href="http://www.hok.com/" target="external">HOK</a> teamed up with the <a href="http://www.beckgroup.com/" target="external">Beck Group</a> to create the new Dali museum. The architecture was inspired by the surrealist artist's own work but also needs to have practical elements to accommodate the expected crowds and of course Florida's sometimes wild weather.
