Museums by Web

Ever want to visit a famous museum but didn't have time for a quick out-of town trip?

What if you could peruse the museum's collection online?

Ever seen a moon rock? Or a million-year old human skull?

Or maybe you like cowboys & The Old West? Check out Fort Worth's Sid Richardson Collection of Western Art!

Or maybe you like hands-on science. Try San Francisco's Exploratorium!

The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston Web site has "special presentations" which explore selected exhibitions at the museum. Similarly, there are "Explore & Learn" online presentations available at New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art.

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!

Get a front-row seat at home and save the travel time and costs!
