Interested In Art, But Don't Get Out Much? Check out Art Project by Google!

If you don't travel much or are just annoyed by crowds, but you are interested in art then I have just the thing for you! Actually Google does. Taking the Google Maps Street View to well over a dozen of the world's finest museums, you can walk the halls and browse the works of masters from the comfort of your living rooms, offices and daily commutes (assuming you aren't the one driving). Once you have "walked up" to a piece of artwork, you can then zoom in for a very high resolution look.

The UI is a little wonky, but once you get used to it, it's more than adequate. And since you can't beat the price (especially considering the costs involved in actually travelling to each location) you should at least give it a look.
