Video: Virtual Museum Visits



A visit to the museum can be a rewarding experience.

But what if it’s just too far away?

The world’s biggest search engine, Google, has a solution.

The Google Arts and Culture app lets you virtually visit more than twelve hundred (1,200) sites in seventy (70) countries, for free.

Artworks are indexed using tags, and sorted by date of origin, and even by color. Google’s cardboard platform even lets users enjoy places in 360 degree virtual reality, making places like India’s Taj Mahal practically palpable.

Just like this virtual classical concert in Sydney.

By zooming in, users can take a closer look at various artworks. What’s the painting in Van Gogh’s famous Bedroom in Arles?
