Take a peek around! The Knesset has launched a campaign allowing viewers to take a virtual tour of Israel's parliament using Street View, the popular Google Maps service which allows viewers to get a bird's-eye view of neighborhoods in cities and towns in much of the developed world.

The Knesset joins a select list of parliament and government buildings - including the White House, 10 Downing Street, the Canadian parliament building in Ottawa, and the Belgian royal palace - that have made their hallowed halls available to online tourists.

The application allows visitors to view the Knesset from the vantage point afforded to them by all four floors.
