Google Art Project Takes You Into Museums Around the World

Over the past few years, Google Maps and Street View have made huge progress in bringing us to faraway places we might not otherwise get to visit. Now, its new Art Project provides street view-style access to 1,000 pieces of art in 17 different museums around the world. Art is displayed via high resolution photos through Picasa. So hi-res, in fact, that Google refers to the technology as "gigapixel photo-capturing technology."

Such advanced imaging technology means that you can zoom into the art to get an incredibly close look at its detail, and an informational panel describes the specific piece you're viewing. You can even build your own virtual "collection" by adding notes for future reference. And in addition to works of art, the new project gives you the ability to virtually tour museums from New York's MoMA to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
