The art is often mesmerising, but the walking, the standing, the queuing, the crowds, they all put me off museums every time.
Now, comes perfection. The art and a new way to see it. Of course, depth and perspective are limited but Google has used its Street View technology to create a dozen plus online tours of some outstanding museums, including:
The State Hermitage Collection, St Petersberg
Palace of Versailles, Versailles
Tate Britain, London
Visit here to start.
