Explore entire cultures from your own sofa, as in partnership with Google, the British Museum has now digitized over 4 and a half thousand objects online for you to view, special exhibitions to browse, and you can walk the halls of the entire museum via google streetview!
Avoid the crowds, scope out what you want to see next time you visit, or just play the same game as the Londonist and see if you can spot reflections of people in the cabinets.

"It is now possible to make our collection accessible, explorable and enjoyable not just for those who physically visit, but to everybody with a computer or a mobile device. Our partnership with Google allows us to further our own – extraordinary – mission: to be a Museum of and for the World, making the knowledge and culture of the whole of humanity open and available to all."
