Museum Collections go Digital

Here’s are some great resources for teachers, parents, and art lovers in general. You can explore the British Museum’s Online Collection and The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam’s Online Collection from the comfort of your home. Visit over 60 galleries of the British Museum or see the works of the Dutch Masters.

Both museums have uploaded a tremendous amount of their art since the beginning of the pandemic. Many of the masterpieces can even be downloaded. According to Smithsonian Magazine, “allowing the public to download and transform images enables patrons to interact more fully with museum artifacts, making them participants in the creation of cultural history.”

Browse room by room or search for your favorite art piece and transform it into something new!
