If you dont live nearby or work keeps you from being able to take your lunch break as an excuse to mosey around the Tate, MoMA or the Tretyakov, Google has arrived at a temporary solution: Art Project.

It is even possible to zoom into various works of art at a considerable distance, so you needn’t worry about setting off any alarms or run the risk of being carted off to a Russian prison because you wandered a little too close to a piece of work.
Well im off, going to get lost in the Met. for a few minutes or so!
