Google Launches Virtual White House Tour

Google's Street View lets anyone explore cities around the world, now the Internet company is partnering with the White House to give people a digital tour of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

The Obama administration on Tuesday announced a program with Google Art Project to create a "virtual 360-degree tour" of the White House's public rooms.

"The White House isn't simply a home to First Families or meeting space for world leaders, it's also known as 'The People's House,' a place that should be open to everyone," First Lady Michelle Obama says in a video presentation on the Web site, according to a White House statement.

Google Art Project already uses Street View technology to provide virtual tours of museums.
