36 Inspirational Fine Art Gallery & Museum Websites

The world of fine art is large and historic crossing borders all around the world. Art galleries and museums have been around for centuries but haven’t always been able to market themselves online. Now that most people in the world have Internet access it’s almost strange to not have a website – and this most certainly includes art museums.

For this gallery I’ve put together 36 websites created for museums and fine art galleries. Most layouts employ a sense of minimalism to put a direct focus on the photographs and page content. It’s not everyday that you’d need to create a new museum website, but it’s good to know what some of the big players are using for their own designs.
