Google recently launched a website, which will enable art lovers to stroll through some of the world’s most famous galleries at the click of a mouse.

In a collaboration with 17 leading galleries in nine countries, the US internet giant has taken equipment from the cars it used to map cities and recorded the galleries so they can be enjoyed by anyone with web access. Visitors will be able to look around more than 350 gallery rooms containing work by more than 450 artists.
