Examples of websites that display pairs of items side-by-side?

I am designing a website for a set of museum exhibits. The curator designed the museum panels so two items are displayed on each panel and the viewer experiences them in each other's context. If we were making a book instead of a website, we would place these items on facing pages. What is the equivalent of facing pages in web layout? Can you think of websites that pair items so they are experienced together (i.e. without scrolling down)?

Each half of the pairs would have:
- An image, with a link to a higher-res image
- Artifact data (e.g. call number, year, artist, etc)
- 1–3 paragraphs of text
My first inclination is to put them into 2-column tables, but I am wondering if there is a better way.
Any examples of other people solving this type of problem would be really helpful.
