Recreate a Sunday morning stroll through 18 rooms of the British National Gallery with this virtual tour, all without having to dodge fellow tourists to get a clear view of the paintings. Use the fullscreen mode, and you can lie on the marble floor and look up at the vaulted ceiling without getting trodden upon. Visitors can use the tabbed information box to toggle between floorplans and paintings, and the box can be kept open in the fullscreen view as a navigational aid. Click on any painting to get more information and get a better view. Rooms on the tour include the Central Hall, which has 15th and 16th century paintings from central Italy on pumpkin-colored walls, and a large skylight. Visit Room 45 to see Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cezanne, and other post-Impressionists, or Room 23, Rembrandt and Dutch Painting, to see Rembrandt's Self Portrait at the Age of 63, and other Dutch masters.
