CoBloWriMo Day 28: Museum

One of the absolute best things that has happened for historical fashion enthusiasts in the past several years is that museums are starting to put their collections online.  There really is no substitute for seeing an object in person, and even moreso if you're in a situation where you're allowed to touch and feel, but that's not always possible.  It might be geography, time, money, or any number of factors that might keep someone away from a museum, but thanks to the dual miracles of digital photography and the internet, those things are now accessible on demand.  Here are some of my favorite searchable collections, in no particular order:

The Victoria & Albert Museum, England
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, USA
Los Angeles County Museum of Art, California, USA
Apparently red is the museum logo color du jour...
Staten Island NY, USA

Winterthur Museum, Garden, & Library, Delaware, USA

There are dozens if not hundreds more, but these are just a few of the high points.  What is your favorite museum to browse online?
