The Metropolitan Museum of Art is a collection of the world's most beautiful and unique types of art. It has pieces of art from way back in the 1400's A.D. The site offers many different types of art that the museum has. And at The Cloisters the branch Museum. Anything that might interest you in the fine arts field, you will probably find here on this historic site.
After about 3 hours of exploring this website, I'm quite impressed with what it has to offer.
The Metropolitan Museum website presents a multitude of images and information about the visual arts in its collection, as well as several links to other significant web-sites world wide. The program features artwork from a variety of eras which can be explored in depth. It also integrates multidisciplinary ideas. The web site seems to be consistent with the high standards for which the Metropolitan Museum is well known.
This source can be an effective tool for a student exploring a topic. It can also provide guidelines for an instructor in discussing various dimensions of a piece of art. This source is appropriate for art and design students of all levels, and can be quite relevant and interesting to those in other disciplines as well.
The web site overall has an excellent and user-friendly layout. However, it is as massive as the Metropolitan Museum itself, and sometimes it does get a bit confusing where to find which resources in the education area. However, the web design concern is minor in comparison to the overall quality of this web site.

After several visits totaling just under ten hours, I finally found myself exhausted by the shear volume of information available on The Metropolitan Museum of Art!?s website. What I find most impressive, however, is that the high quality of the material is maintained from subject to subject.
There is great potential for this site to be used for enhancing teaching and learning. In particular, the !?Educational Resources!? and !?Explore & Learn!? sections are specifically formatted with educators and students in mind. In addition to suggestions for incorporating site material into classroom activities and lessons, there are links to external organizations focused on education.
I was able to navigate through the site without too many problems. However, a co-worker with less browsing experience had difficulty finding information on a particular collection, although I had e-mailed her the website's URL. Others with limited browsing experience may also be overwhelmed with the many menus, pages, and links on this site.

I found this site to be very unique. There is a lot of information available within this web site, although at times I found it very difficlut to navaigate my way through. There are many beautiful items available for viewing and purchasing. If you have an interest in fine arts; sculptures, paintings, books, or jewlery, this is the site for you!

I spent a few hours reviewing this site. I found it to be very interesting. Some of the pieces of work that they have there, no other museums would be willing to show. This site offers content that dates back to the A.D. years. I think the material that this site offers is excellent information if you are into fine arts. Students and teachers who want to learn about the history of the fine arts would learn alot from this site. I find it to be very educational if you are an art major or someone who wants to learn about the arts.
I feel there is a lot of information on this site. There is a lot of different sites that you can go look at. It could be difficult for someone to navigate through, because there is so much to look at.
