This page containes links to both real and virtual museum sites of all kinds, online art sites for viewing the paintings of the great masters of western civilization, Biblical and other archaeology sites, history, science, and other cultural and high-brow sites of interest.
Links to many internet resources that stay abreast of the recent discoveries of the ongoing archaeological digs in Israel, as well as the link to Jerusalems leading Christian newspaper, The Jerusalem Christian Review, which reports on archaeological finds relating to the Bible, Jesus, and the early church.
Carol Gertens Fine Art Museum
A wonderful site with thousands of masterpieces for full-screen viewing. A wonderful resource, well worth a visit.
Center for Archaeoastronomy
The study of the astronomical practices, celestial lore, mythologies, religions and world-views of all ancient cultures we call archaeoastronomy. Archaeoastronomy also uses astronomical data from ancient civilizations to more accurately date historical events. I find this field of study fascinating, and it is a ripe field for Christian scientists, in conjunction with Biblical archaeology, to bring the events of Genesis into sharper focus. Be forewarned that worldviews color interpretations when visiting this site.
Classics and Mediterannean Archaeology
An extensive link archive to internet resources of interest to classicists and Mediterranean archaeologists, including links to texts, projects, journals, and bibliographies; other similar web indexes; archaeological site pages; associations and organizations; departments; course materials and teaching resources; museums; atlases and maps; news groups and mail lists; and other servers.
Library of Congress
Many excellent resources, including American Memory, a web archive of documents, photographs, movies, and sound recordings that tell Americas story; Today in History, Legislative information, more.
More than an internet directory of almost every museum in the world, Musee also reviews museum webpages according to educational content, research capabilities, entertainment value, online shopping through the museum shop, and visual content: images and exhibitions that can be viewed online. The database is searchable by museum type (45 different types from Agriculture to Zoos!) review score (only five star museums, or only those museums with visual content, for example), or by geographic location.
The webpage of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration does an admirable job of spreading the unique knowledge that flows from its aeronautics and space research.
National Gallery of Art
The National Gallery of Art houses one of the finest collections in the world illustrating major achievements in painting, sculpture, and graphic arts from the Middle Ages to the present. Search the collection by specific artist, title, or a combination of criteria, or tour the collection by medium and school.
A beautiful, educational, informative, entertaining and fun website, especailly good for geographic information and games. Use caution, however, when National Geographic steps into the realm of science: they are ardent evolutionists. Even other scientific institutions are beginning to criticize NG for their extreme evolutionary views; read the Smithsonians National Museum of Natural Historys recent open letter to National Geographic.
Natural History Museums & Collections
A comprehensive index of both American and international natural history museum home pages.
Wow! This beautiful, fascinating site includes online adventures for each of the programs in the award winning NOVA television series. We keep going back to it, but there is so much here it will take a long time to go through it all.
The Smithsonian Institution was established in 1846 with funds bequeathed to the United States by James Smithson. It holds 140 million artifacts and specimens in its trust for the increase and diffusion of knowledge. The Institution is also a center for research dedicated to public education, national service, and scholarship in the arts, sciences, and history. The Smithsonian is composed of sixteen museums and galleries, the National Zoo, and numerous research facilities in the United States and abroad.
An online art museum chronicling the history of the art of Western Civilization; it provides links to paintings to be viewed online; biographical sketches of the artists, and descriptions of the various schools and styles of art.
William Morris Gallery
I personally love many of William Morris designs from the late 19th and early 20th century, especially as they were used in home decor and linens. The William Morris Gallery maintains a nice collection of images online, as well as some history of the Arts and Crafts movement, links to other sites of interest, a gallery shop, and more.
