Google’s Latest Art Project

Google’s Latest Art Project
With the onset of the New Year, Google has come with a new cultural venture – the Google Art Project. This particular project has taken Google’s Street View technology to art galleries. This project aims to allow users to take a virtual tour around the halls of some of the most famous museums in the world.

With just a few clicks of the mouse, you can now take a closer look at the Freer Gallery in Washington or you can traipse around the halls of the Uffizi Gallery in Florence to check out the Birth of Venus by Botticelli. Every art gallery that you’ve ever wanted to visit can now be visited and every painting that you’ve ever wanted to see can now be viewed in stunning detail.

There are 17 well known museums listed on the site and you can now visit any of them right from the Van Gogh Museum to the Metropolitan Museum. The Google Art Project allows you to view up to 385 gallery rooms and has a total of 1,000+ high-resolution images.
