Can’t get to Versailles? This virtual tour of “Louis XIV, the man and the king,” the current exhibition there, is amazing. It’s a little clunky ? our technology has yet to evolve ? but it points to a future where it will be possible to see a museum exhibition from afar. For now, it’s simply fantastic.
The French were the first, to my knowledge, to put an extensive digitized library collection on-line (long before Google). Might this virtual tour of an exhibition be a first, as well?
