Wikitude (Free)

See the world with different eyes--your phone's camera, that is. Wikitude is an "augmented reality" global travel guide that overlays Wikipedia and other user-contributed content over the phone's camera view, giving you information on your surroundings.

Wikitude uses the phone's GPS, compass, and movement sensors to match your position in relation to the landmarks you point the camera toward. The app works great as a tourist guide but also can be useful for finding the history of places anywhere around you.
