Create a virtual visit to the Walters 17th-c. Chamber of Wonders.
The Chamber of Wonders with its rich mixture of art and natural history specimens and also the two related galleries—the collector’s study and the hall of arms and armor--recreate some of the ways that a princely family in 17th century Europe might have displayed their collections. Although this is the space most favored by visitors and is also an installation that is incorporated into a range of university courses far beyond Baltimore, it has no web presence. Many who like to visit it cannot. So the proposal is to create a virtual visit on the web to these rooms that would allow visitors from kids to scholars to savor the experience of the rooms, “go over and look at something closely,” and then access whatever level of information or commentary they wish.

The Walters Art Museum does have a presence on the Google Art Project ( http://www.google.com/culturalinstitute/collection/the-walters-art-museum?projectId=art-project ), but not with an interior view of the galleries.
Or even better, we have the technology here in Baltimore to make a web-viewable 3D model of the room and all its items.

If you haven't already you should look into the google art project. You can submit an application to google for them to set up their cameras in the exhibit and upload 360° photo tours for all viewers to see.
