MoOM

Museum of Online Museums (MoOM), the invention of Coudal Partners, is a hip site that has recently received lots of recognition. As CP recounts on their website:

Tons of new listings and exhibits have been posted for the summer at our Museum of Online Museums. The MoOM was featured on All Things Considered and in the NY Times. It was also selected as one of Time Magazine's 50 Coolest Websites and was discussed on a recent episode of NPR's Hello Beautiful!

MoOM features a variety of exhibits which it groups into three categories "museum campuses" ( linked to "bricks and mortar" institutions), "permanent collection" (of particular interest to design and advertising) and "galleries, exhibitions and shows" (ecclectic and ever-changing). Although a visit to MoOM is worth the detour, it does not permit the full range of visitor participation you might imagine in today's Web 2.0 world where tagging, rating, comments, and reviews are the norm.
