The trend towards museums scanning and photographing their entire collections, so that they can be viewed online, seems to show no signs of stopping. It's a situation which Google started, by adding a handful of world-famous museum and gallery interiors to its Street View system, and now many other world-famous establishments are keeping the tradition alive.
One of the latest to embrace the digital age is the Rijksmuseum in the Netherlands, which has just finished uploading high-resolution images of its entire collection of more than 210,000 exhibits. There are masterpieces from the likes of Rembrandt and Vermeer, as well as many items that are not so well known. And you are free to browse, search and download as you wish.
