Tech Web Site November 16, 2000
Van Gogh Museum

This is one of the web's few virtual museums that actually allows you to walk through virtual rooms (rather than showing you a 360 degree photograph), and zoom in on the detailed brush-strokes of Van Gogh's masterpieces. But what really makes this site unique among digital museums, and for that matter among brick-and-mortar museums, is the ability to enter two of the paintings (The Bedroom and The Yellow House), and explore their ersatz worlds. There is also the option of viewing and discussing the works with others taking the online tour. As for me, I prefer to have the Van Goghs all to myself.
