The Google Art Project

Want to visit the MoMA in New York, the Museo Thyssen in Madrid, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam or the National Gallery in London but don’t have the finances or time to travel to these great galleries to see the masterpieces of the world?

Well now you can thanks to Art Project by Google. They have taken their streetview technology inside the doors of the galleries/museums around the world enabling art lovers to appreciate the pieces on show without leaving their seat. You can even zoom into selected pieces at each location to see brush-stoke level of detail.

I think this could open so many doors in education, inspiring the talent of the future by exposing them to work they might never have been able to get up close and personal with.

Well done Google!
