  • Google Art Project uses Street View cameras in galleries across the globe...

    Google has unveiled the latest project to use its Street View technology. The Google Art Project comprises a collection of images from galleries across the world, captured by the search giant's cameras.

    Street View cameras were given access to 17 galleries across 11 cities, including the National Gallery and Tate Britain in London, the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow.

  • Specially designed Street View trolleys, seen above, were used to create 360-degree images from inside the galleries, giving users access to 385 rooms across the 17 art institutions.

    Users can access the gallery interiors direct from Street View in Google Maps as well as through the dedicated Google Art Project site.
