Its controversial Street View guide has already let millions take a peek at private addresses all over the world.

Now Google is harnessing this technology to allow users the chance to roam the finest museums on the planet - from the comfort of their own home.

The online search giant even claims its Art Project tours are better than the real thing, with one exhibit in each location available in a high-resolution image that goes beyond 'what is possible with the naked eye'.

Tate Britain, the National Gallery, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg and the Palace of Versailles in France are among 17 museums that have collaborated with the internet giant to offer 360 degree virtual tours of their galleries.

I love it when someone actually applies technology in a way that benefits regular people and better yet; when they do it for free.

I have little money and right now I am a full time caregiver for two elderly folks. Suffice to say I no longer have the opportunity to travel. As an artist it is very important to me to be able to study the works of others. Now I have been given that opportunity. Thank you Google.
