How TAM Differs From The Uffizi

How does TAM differ from the Uffizi Gallery, in Florence, Italy?

The Uffizi is one of the institutions participating in Google's Art Project.*

Art Project uses the technology behind Google Street to allow users to cruise around and inside certain works of art.

London's Tate, St, Pete's Hermitage, and NYC's Guggenheim are among the other museums that participated in the elite launch.

TAM, which does not have a permanent collection for Google to scan, was therefore not eligible for participation.

Here, however, is the link to Street View's look at the exterior of the museum.

*Also, the Uffizi has longer entrance lines and better access to gelato.
