This page is a collection of links to museums with artifacts from ancient cultures regularly encountered in Biblical and Theological studies (Egypt, Mesopotamia, the Levant, Asia Minor, Greece, Rome, and so forth).
Most of the links are part of the Google Arts & Culture project of the Google Cultural Institute. Partner museums allow online access to high-quality images of their artworks at https://artsandculture.google.com. Once there, you could take a virtual tour of the museums. Or, you can search for a specific topic such as “Corinth” or “Babylon,” and the curated results will provide images from across the partner museums.
