You have probably already seen the virtual museum website that Google has recently launched but if you haven't Google Art Project is a must see. The site allows you to walk through some of the worlds best museums. Many, like The State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, are museums I will never see so this is an amazing recourse. You can stop at individual paintings and zoom in on the works. Amazing. Give it a try. It is easy to spend an hour exploring. Here is the link: http://www.googleartproject.com/
My favorite museum is the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, which is also included on the site. It is the most comprehensive collection of antiquities, American art, Greek, Medieval, African; you name it the Met has it. When I lived in NY I would go there often. It is just too big and overwhelming to see all at once so the virtual tour is a great way to see the museum. Go to the floor plan and you can pick which area you want to view. Have fun.
