Six Museum Partners Begin Adding 3D Scans of Objects to Google Cultural Institute Database

From SlashGear:

The Google Art Project expands online today with a collection of more than 200 objects displayed in full 3D. These objects are available – to the public – to be rotated and zoomed in on, allowing users to get up close and personal with them in ways never before possible, online or off.

From TechCrunch:

The six pilot partners for this project are the California Academy of Science, The Museo d’Arte Orientale, The Israel Museum,  The Kunsthistorische Museum Vienna, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art…and the Dallas Museum of Art.

The objects should be viewable without the need for a plug-in. They are rendered in WebGL
