Google Street View tours the Guggenheim Museum

One of the museums I would love to revisit is the Guggenheim Museum in New York.  Unfortunately it isn’t the most affordable trip from the UK, which is why a new online tour of the museum will be a welcome addition to Google Street View.

Captured using tripod-mounted cameras, Street View trolley cameras and even drones, anyone with Internet access can explore the museum’s well-known spiral staircase, which has been featured in scores of movies.

By navigating to a special Google-created site, users can virtually stroll through the museum’s halls and peer up through the structure’s Frank Lloyd Wright–designed circular skylight (known in the museum as the oculus).
