The official site for the Louvre includes everything from a visite virtuelle to an e-boutique.  The Kaléidoscope section allows you to sort online images of works from the museum by a variety of criteria including themes such as the family, sports, music and daily life - useful for cultural connections.

Centre Pompidou   
The musée link of this site is outstanding. It includes an interactive map of the collection with digital reproductions of the works.  There is also a section Centre Pompidou Junior with a variety of online activities targeted at the young folk, including Art en Clic (narrated tours of art works with related videos and activities), Plus d'Art (an online magazine with activities and a virtual gallery of children's art) and Media Box (a sort of multimedia online magazine with audio and video pieces.)

The site for this Paris museum is very nice. It includes a history of the famous train station turned museum, information for visitors, selected works online and e-boutique.

Aixois consider Paul Cézanne their son. His atelier is a featured site just outside of the city. This website reproduces much of the studio's charm via photos and descriptions. The site has ramped up its media and includes Flash animations and panoramic views.  Includes visitors information and e-boutique.
