Almost every great museum in the world has their own Web site. Here are just a few of the museums that you can visit via the Web.
- Metropolitan Museum of Art: every day the Met spotlights a new work of art with in-depth coverage; an extensive site.
- The British Museum: "Travel the World - visit the British Museum".
- Smithsonian Museum: this site is the hub for the Smithsonian's 16 (!) different museums.
- Getty Museum:Admission is free but you have to book in advance. I've been here - the views alone are spectacular, let alone the art.
- Museum of Modern Art: Along with the great exhibits, you can now listen to MOMA programs on the Web.
- Royal Ontario Museum: "From mummies in Ancient Egypt and armour in Medieval Europe, to the biodiversity of Canadas hardwood forests, theres something new to discover around every corner."
- Louvre Museum: Just like the real Louvre, you could spend hours at this website.
- Philadelphia Museum of Art: Features an interactive floor plan, exhibits, and more - you can even subscribe to the home page via RSS.
- Chicago Art Institute: I used to go here every Tuesday when going to school in Chicago (it was free!).
- Guggenheim Museum: One of the most well-designed sites I've come across; great art, too.
- Karpeles Library Manuscript Museum: This is the "the world's largest private holding of important original manuscripts & documents."
