Google Art Project Takes You Inside World Famous Museums

By Jason Fitzpatrick on February 1st, 2011

If you’ve ever wanted to wander the halls of distant museums while still in your cubicle, Google Art Project is an ambitious project that takes you inside dozens of art museums around the world and gives you intensely detailed access to the artwork found within.

Powered by the Google Streetview technology Google Art Project takes you inside museums around the world and gives you the ability to walk the floors, explore the buildings, and–of course–get a good look at the artwork. How good of a look? Check out the video below and marvel at how close you can zoom into the paintings.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
