Antiquities in online Museum Collections

We can't always visit the great collections that exist around the world. Some museums have taken their stewardship seriously enough to develop great online exhibits of their collections and special exhibitions. Here are a few of my favorites -

Metropolitan Museum:  http://www.metmuseum.org/home.asp

Museum of Fine Arts, Boston:  http://www.mfa.org/home.htm

Cleveland Museum of Art:  http://www.clevelandart.org/Explore/

The Vatican Museums do not have a large collection online yet:  http://mv.vatican.va/3_EN/pages/MV_Visite.html

The Louvre in Paris:  http://www.louvre.fr/

The British Museum:  http://www.thebritishmuseum.ac.uk/index.html

Not a museum - but a great collection of slides of Scythian artifacts taken by Prof. Joh Haskins and preserved by the University of Pittsburgh:  http://www.pitt.edu/~haskins/

If you have a link to a great online collection of antiquities - please add it here.

In the time of your life, live - so that in that wonderous time you shall not add to the misery and sorrow of the world, but shall smile to the infinite delight and mystery of it. (Saroyan)

This is our local museum in nearby Spokane,WA.
It is not much for European antiquities but it has a great Native American collection.

Aeolus - thanks for the links  - I love the National Archaeological Museum in Athens  and the Acropolis Museum  (haven't been there in over 6 years   ) (and the Delos museum, and the Delphi museum...  )

akyncy - no I don't really - I'm too poor  - if I ever had any real money I would collect, but I am opposed to collectors who buy up for personal collections unique items that should be on display in museums for all to see as part of our world heritage. I really enjoyed the museums in Istanbul also.  Topkapi isn't really antiquities - but the Archaeological museum attached is a hidden gem - their collection of statuary and relief carving is spectacular.   I'll have to spend some time and see if they have an online collection to add here.  Do you have links to any of the Istanbul Museums?  Or other Turkish museums with good online collections?

One of my favorites in the Pacific Northwest. It is a great museum and even has a Rodin collection but it is in the middle of nowhere.



http://www.maryhillmuseum.org/
Rodin
Just part of this large collection but the Orthodox Icons from Russia are really nice!
    An internationally recognized collection of sculptures and watercolors by the great French master Auguste Rodin, including the only pedestal sized plaster version of the celebrated figure of The Thinker and a life sized plaster of Eve from the famed "Gates of Hell".

    The Rodin Gallery was recently renovated and re-designed with all of the sculptures in the Museum's collection now on permanent display.


Baskets Pic
Historic & contemporary baskets and
pots from the American Southwest
#      Native American Collections

    An extensive Native American Collection comprised of rare prehistoric rock carvings, intricate baskets and beadwork, plus a vast array of unique artifacts from throughout North America. The baskets in the collection encompass both the older traditions and examples of styles influenced by European based cultural contact.

kotumeyil - great link - was never able to get inland as far as Ankara so I had to satisfy myself with the ruins along the Med and Aegean coast and the museums (WOW) in Istanbul.  BTW - do you know if the museum maintains a site of its own?  Some of the links on the geocities site were broken. 

M Pasha - How could I forget the Getty - should have been on my first list.  That's why more brains are always better than one.   But I am still sure that I will have trouble explaining that to the cops when they stop me for a broken taillight and find the extra brains that I keep in the trunk of my car. 

reign - again WOW - the quality of this exhibit just blew me away.  One of the better interactive museum visits I've seen. 

lildiamond (are you sure that that's not backwards? )  great webzine - and what do they have at the foot of their pages? 

More Museum Links

Thanks everyone - keep em comin

I'm so proud of you all

Unfortunately I don't know. Maybe it's under construction or something...
