The Center for Netherlandish Art at the Museum of Fine Art Boston have created this rather intriguing mapping tool which helps art lovers seek out Dutch Art. Once you've found a relevant museum or institution, users are allowed to click through to descriptions of the highlights of these places alongside links to their databases which show their Dutch collections.

According to the website:

Museums throughout the United States have significant collections of pre-modern Dutch art. To help people identify and locate these museums, the Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in New York and the Center for Netherlandish Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston created “Mapping Dutch Art in the United States.” This digital mapping project allows users to more easily explore museums in the United States that show 17th-century Dutch art. The different sections below the map provide further resources to gain general knowledge about 17th-century Dutch art and understand its impact on collecting and exhibitions in the United States.
