Virtual Visits

One of my favorite museums in the world is the awesome British Museum in London. Every time that I visit the UK capital, I try and spend at least a few hours there. Now we can all pop into this extraordinary institution without dropping a bundle on a plane ticket to London because the British Museum has partnered with Google so that we can see more than 4,500 objects from the collection from the comfort of our digital devices.

Using Google Maps technology, the Google Cultural Institute offers the opportunity to virtually wander the British Museum at our leisure. Check it out right here.
