It is good practice to go to the websites of individual museums to find out their policies on downloading images for educational purposes. This is continuously changing, the general trend being towards greater open access by the museums of their images for educational purposes when copyright is not an issue. In fact, many of the museums have placed their public domain images on Flickr and invite additional information about the images by the public.
Emphasis has been placed on sites that are open access for research and educational use. These sites are indicated by the "open lock" symbol.
