Google Art Project
The Google Art Project is a website that lets you explore art museums from around the world. After selecting a museum, such as the Van Gogh art museum in Amsterdam, you can select various paintings to view in high resolution, or find paintings by virtually navigating through the museum. Once a painting is selected an information panel can be viewed where you can read about the artwork, select other works by that artist, and even watch YouTube videos related to the painting. If you sign in a with a Google account, you can create your own collection of art that can be shared with others.
