This has to be the most amazing online museum that I’ve ever seen. And even better, it was a bit of a click and discover journey as I tried to figure out how it all worked. Each click led to a new bit of understanding of the site’s layout and I was able to learn a little bit more about art as I went. So, if you’re up for it, explore by clicking everywhere and you will discover the museum just like I did. It was a lot of fun for me, but I also know that it would be very frustrating for some people. Well, don’t worry, I’m here to eliminate some of that frustration!

When you get to the site and it loads up, you’ll notice that it has layers. The first layer is Nightwatching. Click the word Nightwatching to enter the section. Here you can explore Nightwatching by Peter Greenaway. You can even click the Nightwatching Special to see a slideshow for this area. Nightwatching is a project by Peter Greenaway that brings Rembrandt’s’ The Night Watch to life. It’s pretty interesting, so make sure you check it out!

The second layer is The Rijkswidget. Click the text to enter the section. Here you learn all about the widget and how to download it. You can even read users’ comments on it! It’s a neat little program.

The third layer is The Masterpieces. Again, click the text to enter. You completely want the Open de button here. Let the window open and click the link that says Take a Look at the Masterpieces. This lets you get a look at all of the art work. There are also links along the bottom that let you look at other things of note, such as a dollhouse that costs the price of a real house and was one woman’s hobby. (Perhaps, obsession is a better term!)

The fourth and last layer is Really Rembrandt? This section discusses whether some paintings were really Rembrandt’s handy work or not. I find it very interesting that so many of the paintings that people claim were painted by famous artists are under such debate.

Get ready to explore a very interesting online museum. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!
