The Museum of Online Museums

This site, a rabbit-hole, only got a casual mention back in 2012. Two other posts from 2011 were about specific collections, so I believe this is the first post about the full site. The lists are updated quarterly so there's a lot new (and they're marked since the last update). The sections for the main collections are The Museum Campus, The Permanent Collection, and Galleries, Exhibitions, and Shows. Then, over on Page Two / Archives (link in the upper right corner), are several other categories of lists/links for such things as posters, typography, comics, maps & travel. I dipped into Typography and quickly realized I'd be there for hours, so have put it off. Great fun.

The list under Galleries, Exhibitions and Shows makes a visit worthwhile.

I will be lost for hours just browsing the museum shops, they are treasure troves for unusual gifts.

The Field Notes people host this? Interesting.

That is far beyond a rabbit hole. All the links will be dead before I get partly though them.

Love Coudal. Some might not know that they made The Deck ad network that Metafilter used to run. Thanks for the prompt to poke around in there.
