Museums can teach you a lot about a city…but usually, it just makes you want to head back outside. To that end, the Museum of London just launched an augmented reality app called StreetMuseum, which drops vintage photos into the London streets where they were taken—along with a few paintings for a glimpse into an even more distant past. Count us as very impressed.
