It’s not enough to have Google Street Views of all the actual streets in the world; for some time now the GSV camera has been going places like down the Grand Canyon with a back pack. Art tours are also prevalent on Google’s Art Project.

I took just a few minutes to visit virtually, walking up and down the aisles and taking note of the feel of the place — though one can’t (yet) open boxes or cabinets to rifle through the collections.

GEH has a reliably interesting blog, and must be the rare photography institution with a Manager of Online Engagement, who authored the blog post on their work with Google.
