Museums and Images
Google Art Project - Google recently launched Google Art Project with indoor “street views” of galleries and gigapixel photos of works at 17 museums from around the world, including the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the Uffizi Gallery in Florence and the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg. Once inside the site, you can travel through a museum’s interior through the same technology used to navigate city streets on Google Maps and Google Earth. You can move from room to room within the virtual space and view more than 1,000 artworks painted by 400 artists. And you can even create and share your own collection of masterpieces online. Check out videos on the Art Project’s YouTube Channel.

Structurae deals mostly with bridges, tunnels, dams, skyscrapers, stadiums, towers, etc. Explore this site to discover the marvelous works of structural engineering.
You can search this database -- a Google site search box is available -- but it's much more interesting to browse. Click on the Structures link at the top, and you'll be transported to a page that explains the different ways you can peruse the site, with the actual links down the lefthand side.
