Google Art

Many more museums and galleries from round the world have added works to the Google Art Project: the Benaki Museum of Islamic Art, Beijing's Jintai Art Museum, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Istanbul Museum of Modern Art, the Musee del Oro in Bogota, the Latvian National Museum of Art, the Korean Art Museum Association, Mathaf: the Arab Museum of Modern Art, the Palazzo Vecchio Museum, the Acropolis Museum, and the Chateau de Chantilly--184 institutions altogether. Each has mounted selected works, which can be viewed online in slideshows or in extreme close-up. You can also select the "museum view" which lets you traverse selected interior galleries of a museum, using Google's street view.

For more information, check out the Google Art Project YouTube Channel.
