The Metropolitan Museum of Art relaunched their website recently, and for a history nerd like me it’s like getting a new toy. The Met has one of the best collections in the world and has done an impressive job of digitizing it. You can search the collection here, and find high-quality images of everything from shoes to swords to snuffboxes. So far I’ve just been using it to do a little 18th century outfit planning (see, I even picked out a coat for my date), but I’m sure I’ll actually start doing more serious research soon. After I’m done looking at shoes. Blue ones, obviously.
