victoria and albert museum

The London museum houses a tremendous collection and has invested in building a robust and well-organized website. Many museums offer some images of materials in their collection, but the Victoria & Albert Museum offers short and informative articles about a number of topics. Here are a few:
Plants in English, Chinese, and Indian art (
Ruling in China (
Manchu footwear (something I've not seen anywhere else:
Ukiyo-e: Images of the Floating World (
An entire section of the site is devoted to several articles about kimonos (

Most of the images can be enlarged and are well-documented with location, era, and other information. Easily one of the most user-friendly and informative museum websites available.
