Projects and Online Access Recommendations from JCA Staff and Members

Trevor G Headshot - No handles

The British Museum, London

Recommendation from Trevor

Visit The Museum of the World – an interactive experience through time, continents and cultures, featuring some of the most fascinating objects in human history. The project is a partnership between the British Museum and Google Cultural Institute. For the first time ever, discover objects from the British Museum’s collection from prehistory to the present using the most advanced WebGL (Web Graphics Library) technology available. Jump back in time to explore objects from across diverse cultures and listen to British Museum curators share their insights. Click to connect objects across time and space, and discover hidden links between then and now. Take a look around, explore and learn something new! Enjoy your visit.

P.S. At least 11 other museums (including the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam - pictured above) have gone virtual with their collections while they are closed to the public.
