Still Worth Actually Going (The Israel Museum Is On Google Street View)

Still Worth Actually Going (The Israel Museum Is On Google Street View) December 9, 2015

Don’t get me wrong. I am delighted that one can use Google Street View to visit the Israel Museum. It is an amazing place, and everyone ought to rush to do this immediately. It really is very cool.

But for those who may be wondering, it is still worth actually going to the museum, not least because walking through its collections can be part of a broader experience that involves walking the streets of old Jerusalem. Yes, I know that you can do that using Google Street View too. But some things are still worth doing in person.

(If you have no other plans for late May/early June, let me know if you are interested in going on the trip I am leading for students from Butler University and Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis.)

And if you missed the ASOR annual meeting, you can get glimpses of that thanks to modern technology, too.
