Museums of India: National Portal and Digital Repository 

India's Ministry of Culture is in the process of creating a national repository of digitized materials from many Indian museums. Recently, the Ministry selected ten museums from around the nation to prioritize in these efforts. These museums include the National Museum in New Delhi, the Indian Museum of Kolkata, and the National Galleries of Modern Art in New Delhi, Mumbai, and Bengaluru. On this website, visitors can explore a number of materials that have already been digitized. These images are arranged through over 100 curated Virtual Exhibitions, and can be explored by selecting the tab with the same name. As of this writing, the collection includes an especially impressive collection of over 200 portraits. Other collections of note include Stone Age Tools, Depictions of 18th & 19th century India by Stay at Home British Artists, and Life Scenes of Buddha in sculptures at Nagarjunakonda, to name just a few. Each image in these collections can be explored in close detail and is accompanied by a description.
