Links to History: The Museum of Online Museum

I just came across a cool website featured in an old American Teacher magazine. American Teacher is the national publication of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT). The AFT is basically the union of all unions.

Which is very fitting considering the link I found is the online museum of all online museums.

The Museum of Online Museums, or MoOM, is an ongoing experiment of web publishing, design and commerce from the Chicago based design company, Coudal Partners.

The MoOM is updated often and they have a rotating gallery. There probably isn't a museum you can think of which isn't listed.

Online museums are a good way to bring otherwise inaccessible art to the classroom. Often times the museum will allow you to zoom in and navigate each piece and the good ones will have a background of the piece to help set the scene.
