Virtual art gallery visits – amazing.

Google Art Project – I didn’t see this one coming, but I should have.  Street View inside galleries – it’s just amazing.

Check it out.

From Slashdot.org:

“Google has announced a collaboration with 17 of the world’s most acclaimed art museums that lets people view over 1,000 high res artwork images and 17 gigapixel images while taking a virtual stroll through their galleries using Street View technology. While nothing can beat seeing a work of art in person, the Google Art Project could be the next best thing for those without the time and money to pop on a plane and trade elbows with crowds of tourists looking to catch a glimpse of what some of the best museums have on offer.”

Ever neat.

    This is amazing. I’m so glad you posted it. You can see things on the paintings that you would not even see in a museum.

    Super for parents and children to share together. I’m very impressed.
