Google Street View Takes You Inside the Iraq National Museum

For your weekend virtual enjoyment: A hat tip to our webmaster Dan McEwan for this one. If eight years of war in Iraq has had debatable results in terms of democracy or stability, it has at least brought Google Street View to Baghdad. And now, you can follow it right inside the Iraq National Museum in Baghdad. Click here, then move the little street view figure around, and you can do a virtual tour of the museum.

UPDATED: for several hours I put an embed here, but it was taking forever to load the main page, so I've deleted it; just click on the above link if you're interested.
