M is for Museum Marvellers

How many museums are there in the United States?
There are at least 17,500

from The International Council of Museums:

"ICOM is not aware of the accurate number of museums in the world. However, in its 17th edition (2010), the most comprehensive directory Museums of the World, published by De Gruyter Saur, lists 55,000 museums in 202 countries."
