What is an
Object?

Anything can be an object: a thousand-year-old coin in a museum, a painting in an art gallery, a plant in a botanical garden, an animal in a zoo, a building in a city, even a person.

Browse online collections on OOKL and discover for yourself. Find objects in museums, galleries, historic houses, and many more.
