Mars 3D is a NASA website that features a gallery of images of Mars that can be viewed with 3D glasses. The gallery contains dozens of images to explore in 3D. If you don't have 3D glasses NASA directions for making your own 3D glasses at home or at school. NASA provides a PDF to print as the template for the glasses and the rest of the materials are easily found in stores if you don't already have them.
