I survived the week (hooray!) and got everything done (hooray!!!), and am enjoying a three-day weekend (hooray!!!!!). Tomorrow I’m off to Vermont for the week.

The first few are listed here, (and linked from the header if you are reading this on I hope you find them as fascinating as I do, and if you have suggestions for the list please leave a comment or send me an email.

    I don’t know what degree of organization and searchability you’re looking for, but I know of a couple that you may want to list.

    From the National Museum of Denmark: Photos of exhibits that are very zoomable. I obtained this from Katrin Kania’s blog:

    In particular, this page has great zoomable photos of the Mammen textile artifacts:

    This page is from the Gotlands Museum. It features a kind of 360 degree photo of the Museum that you can navigate and zoom on. I haven’t found any pictures of textile artifacts yet, however.

    Oops again. Now I managed to erase my original post.

    I’ve found two on-line museum photo sites. This one is from the Gotlands Museum. It’s a 360 degree photo of the museum interior, that you can navigate around. Mostly it consists of great photos of standing stones.

    The National Museum of Denmark has great, zoomable photos of various exhibits. Start here; hit the Union Jack to get the English language version, and go hunting:

    This sub-page has photos of the Mammen textiles:

    If I find others, I’ll let you know!
