What's the best app or website for learning about and seeing lots of museum art?

It seems like every six months or so, I learn about a new website that seems to be all about showing off art, but falls short somehow. I signed up for the beta of Art.sy, but closed my account after it became super-apparent that they're just hosting pictures of works available for sale. I want a website or an app that's the equivalent of a giant art history textbook - lots and lots of works, representative of periods and otherwise, that I can browse through and train my aesthetic eye. Ideally, it'd be the sort of place where I could see (download, even?) versions of works by major and minor artists across museums. I'm not against paying, either one time or subscription, for something like this.
Does anything like this exist? Art nerds, what sorts of tools do you use?
