Bring museums and art to your classroom

Google never ceases to amaze me, in its steady march to global conquest. Or so it seems at times.

My latest discovery is Google's Art Project, which allows you to take stunning virtual tours of famous museums and the works of art inside.

Interested in Van Gogh? Jump to that museum, and browse art ... or walk the halls through zooming features similar to Google's streetview technology.

I'll be using this in both my literature and history classes, for sure.
