Visiting Art Galleries

There's no doubt that Google has changed the world as we know it. It is possible to find just about anything by googling it [I wish it was this easy to find my car keys.....]. When we are planning a trip we can google the address, get a map of how to get there and see a photo of what the place looks like with Street View - a wonderful facility.
Now it's possible to visit some of the world's greatest art galleries and walk around the greatest paintings using the 'street view' facility of google. Have a look here to begin your visit.

I've just come from having a look around the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and am inspired once again by those wonderful Dutch painters.
