Looking for Art

Wandering aimlessly around a museum can be wonderful in itself, but knowing which way to head when you want to see the Egyptian tombs at the Met is another thing. Luckily, Google Maps are going indoors – starting with the floorplans of some of the biggest and most cavernous institutions. The Smithsonian museums and the Hirshhorn in DC are in the works, as is the Art Institute of Chicago and the British Museum.
