The British Museum This is Britain's national treasure, much like our Metropolitan Museum of Art. Their collection contains millions of artworks from pre-history until modern times.
Highlights links you to their collection. You can then explore the collection by four topics. Note: Non-Western cultures are in this list, too. Please be careful to research art from Egypt, Greece, Rome, Europe and the United States.
You can also take virtual tours of the museum by theme, for example Egypt, Greece, Britain, the Americas and many more. But be careful, some of the themes are for Non-Western art.
Explore by themes such as animals, time, money and writing.
There is a special section where you can learn about major world cultures from around the world. Please remember that Non-Western cultures are also represented. There are short essays with links to representative artworks and virtual tours.
