Explore museums, great works of art

Google, via its new site Art Project, has undertaken a unique collaboration with some of the world’s most acclaimed art museums, including NYC's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), London's National Gallery and Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum, to enable people to discover and view more than a thousand artworks online in extraordinary detail. Using Google's Street View technology, visitors move virtually around the museum's galleries and works of art.

  • Make sure you have a computer/connection that can handle this image-intensive site;
  • Some of the paintings and features captured with Street View were required to be blurred by the museums for reasons pertaining to copyrights;
  • The museums chose the galleries, artwork and information to include, not Google;
