Did you know that, as well as producing maps of streets, Google has been using its Street View technology to allow people to discover exhibits and collections from museums and archives all around the world? The Google Cultural Institute includes images from the Globe Theatre, Carnegie Hall, the Bolshoi Theatre and the National Gallery, London.

One of the latest to be added is the British Museum in London. Their Museum View allows you to virtually walk around the museum and view the exhibits. As well as the regular galleries, there are also images based on recent exhibitions including ‘Celtic Life in Iron Age Britain’ and ‘Egypt: Faith after the Pharoahs’.
