One of the Russian art galleries or museums, I think perhaps in St Petersburg, has a virtual tour on their website where you can walk around all the galleries in 3D as if you were there (like those semi-video tours that estate agents do). I read about this in some art blog recently. URL?

Dear montecristo,

I believe that you are referring to The Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg; one of the best museums in the world. They supply a ‘virtual tour’ of their rooms with a fixed camera located in the centre of the room, However, it is not in 3D.

Or are you thinking of the World Heritage Museum website which aims to show 3D images of cultural objects? As yet, the site is not fully functional despite the site stating the images are available as at 1st December.

If this is not the museum, let me know and I shall research further.
