Google Art Project offers virtual tours through art museums

Google revealed it's newest project: The Google Art Project is an interactive online tour that takes users through some of the greatest museums in the world using a Google Street View-like interface.

The Google Art Project allows users to virtually explore the interior of 17 partner museums. The Google Street View team designed a brand-new vehicle called the 'trolley' to take 360-degree images of the interior of selected galleries. Eachimages contains around 7 billion pixels (more than 1,000 times more detailed than an average digital camera).

The Google Art project is in it's early stages, but certainly worth a visit: Google Art Project.
