Tour the Major Art Galleries of the World

Have you ever wanted to drop into the Museum of Modern Art in New York, take a stroll through the Uffizi Gallery in Florence or perhaps see what's up at the Tate in London? Google Art Project has collected hundreds of masterpieces from some of the world's greatest museums online at the following website: Google Art Project. One amazing feature is the ability to zoom into the images at very high magnification rates. Highly recommended.
