[teacherartexchange] Art Museums: Vatican Museum Online

Dear List Members,

Here is a "gem" from Scout Report.

12. Vatican Museums Online

Visiting the Vatican and its splendid museums can be hard. Navigating
through the throngs of camera-ready tourists and other such features of the
place can try the patience of even the most seasoned traveler. For
edification and leisure, the Vatican Museums Online's website is a good
surrogate, especially if one is unable to make the journey in person. The
site affords visitors access to the Sistine Chapel, the Gregorian Egyptian
and Etruscan Museums, the Pinacoteca, and the Ethnological Missionary
Museum. With the help of Java, visitors can take 360 degree tours of each
museum's rooms, and view each object in context. Then they may wish to go
back and look at the contents of each room in detail. All of the exhibits
are lovely, but the Gregorian Egyptian Museum is a real treat, as it
contains various reliquaries and artifacts which were transferred to Rome in
the Imperial age, and then subsequently moved to the Vatican. Specifically,
visitors should look at the statue of the god Anubis and the granite statute
of Queen Tuya. [review by Max Grinnell ]

This site will be added to my museum resources soon.

Enjoy your visit.
