Good website / Bad website

June 20 2012

The first in an occasional series devoted to museum websites; we either praise them for being brilliant, or name and shame them for being hopeless. Today, shame falls on the site of the Alte Pinakothek in Munich, home to one of the world's greatest collections - but with precious few works available online. Join the 21st Century please!

And we praise the National Art Library at the V&A. A clear, easy to use catalogue, which lets you order books online before you go - brilliant!
