More and more brick & mortar museums are digitizing their collections to be able to share their wares with the online community, joining virtual museums (such as the art WebMuseum) and library Web sites with online exhibits (such as the Library of Congress' Exhibitions Web site).
There is even a Museum of Online Museums!
