The National Museum of American Art, part of the Smithsonian Institution, has made selections from its collections available via the web. The site is graphically quite intensive, as might be expected; loading time is increased by the site's reliance on image maps for navigation (although some "mostly text pages" are available). Users will need audio plug-ins to fully experience the site, which contains in-depth exhibits for the researcher and the visual arts admirer. These include Highlights of the Permanent Collection, the White House Collection of American Crafts, and the American Kaleidoscope, to name a few. Information on publications and exhibit schedules is also provided.
