Few have the opportunity to visit many of the most spectacular museums and historic locations around the globe. However, Google is here to help.
Tech giant Google recently announced some tantalizing updates to its Art & Culture App, released last year. Among the most exciting additions is “Google Cardboard Tours,” which features some 20 additional historic and museum locations — including the Valley of the Temples in Sicily, home to some of the oldest examples of traditional Greek architecture.
New additions also included an “Art Recognizer,” which allows one to turn any museum visit into an interactive experience. Since 2011, Google has been teaming up with over 1,000 art institutions and other locations to make their artifacts and artworks more widely available to the public — especially those not able to visit them. The app offers 360-degree tours of museum’s permanent collections and much more.
