If you think you already have the best deal possible with the virtual tours to world’s best known cultural establishments, then you are here for a big surprise.
Google has recently updated its Arts & Culture platform’s website and mobile app. Among other amazing stuff, the updated version brings you an option to explore featured works of art by color based search or chronologically ordered timeline.
As you know, Google’s Cultural Institute is dedicated to bring down the barriers of time and space and make the world’s rich cultural heritage accessible to everyone on the planet. Already more than 1,100 cultural establishments have partnered with it since its inception in 2011. For cultural enthusiasts, history and art lovers it has been a dream come true.
Moreover, Google has also provided with an innovative “Art Recognizer” tool that becomes your virtual curator and guide. It gives you comprehensive description about everything you want to know. This feature is currently available at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, London, the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia and the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC.
So, the most prestigious historical monuments and establishments are just a download away.
