The official blog of Britain's National Portrait Gallery is an exemplar of a good museum blog. Each entry provides additional insight into the works at the National Portrait Gallery accompanied by plenty of images of artwork. As a result, the blog can be enjoyed by art fans around the world, while also offering a helpful educational tool that will enhance visits to the National Portrait Gallery. Recent entries highlight the self-portraits of Paul Cezanne, the work of photographer Charlie Clift, and a pair of "Curator's Choice" blog posts, in which gallery curators select their favorite works in the museum. Visitors can browse previous blog posts by portraiture periods (including Tudor, 20th century, contemporary) or medium (painting, photography, or sculpture.) In addition, visitors can browse entries that address what goes on behind the scenes at the museum (e.g. conservation, new additions).
