Google Cultural Institute

August 22, 2017


Don't know what to do to pass some free-time during the rainy days? #Google can help you.


During the winter, we tend to appreciate our home's fireplace more than our car's AC system. To postpone the trip to a distant museum for aq summer day makes perfect sense; however when those beautiful days come, we might want to be outdoors as much as possible.


Fortunately, someone at Google has considered this, and we can now rely on our #computer to virtually visit more than 1,000 museums!


Although it is a feature that Google has been offering for quite some time (5 years), its existence is still unknown to the wide public. To #celebrate its fifth anniversary, 100 new collections, 200 new interactive stories, 50 image collections and 10,000 new artefacts were added to what was an already #impressive online collection, helped by a prolific use of Google Street View.


I don't think the Google Cultural Institute will ever replace a personal visit to a good #museum, but with so many great museums out there it is impossible to visit them all!


This tool is definitely the next best thing to hand, and saves us a lot of time and effort, bringing us closer to the museums we like, and to those we otherwise would never know.


#Kudos to Google!
