Art Project, a new venture, brings Google StreetView technology to some of the world's greatest museums. You can take a walk through the museum galleries, wandering from room to room.
Highlights from each museum's collection can be viewed in stunning detail - often at many times closer in than a brush stroke. Some of the virtual galleries let you choose paintings right off the wall for closer viewing.
Museums include the Uffizi in Florence, The Cloisters in New York, and the Hermitage in St. Petersberg.
