How about a google government,
That follows our politicians, and goes to their homes, that is where Americas treasures are!

Excellent idea Angela.
Thanx for the cool story, still like to see it up close and personal. However, viewing the Smithsonian would rock.

Wow, how cool is that. I love museums. I have been thinking of what it might be like as a spirit after we die. Will we be able to fly all over the world and see what everything is like?

Great... I love museums and have spent hours lost in a number of them. I think the reason my parents never took me to the Smithsonian was they were afraid that they would permanently lose me in the Egyptian wing.

There is still nothing like seeing the real thing with your own eyes in the same room. One might as well look at a good art book.

This is promising. Last year, a major art gallery in Italy released ultra hi-def images of it's art on the web, enough to study the brush strokes and techniques of the old masters.
This kind of activity makes the art far more accessible, and you don't have to burn tons of jet fuel to go see it.
