Wednesday - 12/1/2010, 11:52am EST

The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force has launched an interactive 360-degree virtual tour. Users now have access to lecture series and audio tour podcasts, downloadable maps of the museum and panoramic views.

From their computers, history buffs can walk by JFK's Air Force One or the Presidential Gallery at the Museum. Users can navigate a virtual map of a little less than half of the museum and view its exhibits through high-definition, panoramic photos.

The completed tour will be rolled out in phases in coming months. The first phase is complete and includes interactive capabilities for the Air Park and Memorial Park. When completed, the entire museum will be accessible through 92 high-definition panoramic "nodes."
