Metropolitan Museum of Art Education

The education section of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's web site has been created especially for children. Users will find activities such as one where they view a small portion of an image and guess what the picture is. There's a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page with the most popular questions posed by children. The site has resources for teachers, with inks to summaries of current and recent exhibits and indices of works of art by region or time period.
