Google Art Project 360-degree camera
A specially designed Street View camera mounted on a trolley captured 360-degree views of the museum rooms. These images were stitched together to create a more-or-less seamless museum tour.
The museum views can also be reached via Google Maps, which will link to the project.
A Google spokeswoman told ZDNet UK that the company hopes to expand the project's reach in the future, although it does not have firm dates. "This is the first incarnation, and over the next few years we hope to add more works, more museums and more partners," she said.
