J. Paul Getty Museum Becomes ‘Google Goggles-Enabled’

If you were holding off on visiting the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles until you could hear an excited talking pig explain to you Adoration of the Magi with Saint Anthony Abbot, then clear your schedule because that day has finally arrived.
