The Google Art Project

 I am completely blown away by the Google Art Project just released online! I frequent museums and believe that viewing paintings in person is a worthwhile experience. But when I can use Google to walk into the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, and view one of his paintings so closely that I can melt right into the brush strokes, it is a good day to be alive! And imagine the people who don't have the mobility or means to travel the world for the luxury of these experiences. If you haven't visited yet, make sure you do! Check out the Visitor's Guide and Behind the Scenes offerings as well.

I agree! I was so excited too about Google Art! And zooming in you see even more as in a museum, incredible!
