Virtual Mauritshuis – Gigapixel Old Masters

The Mauritshuis, a Dutch institution famous for its collection of Rembrandts, Vermeers, and other northern Old Masters, has recently become the first museum in the world to offer a gigapixel virtual experience. Visitors can now view the Mauritshuis’s collection and 17th-century building through images with a billion-pixel resolution. Although not typically a fan of virtual museum visits, I quite enjoyed this one. Here’s what I thought.
