Google Art Project's trolley
Google has launched a new discovery tool, called Art Project, that lets users explore 17 of the world's most well-known museums.
With the new tool, people use Google's Street View interface to "walk" through museum halls and explore different artworks. Users can choose a specific piece and check out the on-screen information pane for background info.
Google says it plans on expanding its museum coverage, but for now it has more than 1,000 images for users to explore.
Browse the following images to see a small sampling of the great works of art Google has available in Art Project.
